An intensifying tropical low to the northwest of Western Australia is generating
an extensive area of convective cloud. A low pressure trough extending to the
south from this low is producing a cloud band with thunderstorms, with cloud
streaming further through southern Western Australia. 

Isolated thunderstorms can also be seen near the north coast of New South Wales.

Areas of low cloud are visible over Tasmania, Victoria, southern New South Wales
and South Australia in a moist onshore flow.

A high pressure ridge is keeping other parts of the country mostly cloud free.
