A broad low pressure trough arcs across tropical northern Australia and down
through inland Queensland and NSW. This trough combined with humid northwesterly
winds is triggering isolated thunderstorm activity over the tropics and patchy
cloud over the region.

Further south patchy low cloud sweeps along the country's south coast with a
moist onshore flow. Low cloud also extends along the NSW coast and adjacent
areas with the onshore flow driven by the inland trough. Smoke from fires over
southeastern Australia can be seen extending over the Tasman Sea.
