Showers and thunderstorms extend along a low pressure trough through Western
Australia's Southern Interior and Eucla districts. Low cloud covers the South
West Land Division ahead of a cold front to the southwest of the state.

Showers and thunderstorms remain active across the Kimberley and northern half
of the Northern Territory due to a broad area of low pressure and tropical
moisture. Middle and high level cloud is streaming from this area over central
Australia. Patchy cloud lingers in the vicinity of a low pressure trough from
northwest Queensland to Hervey Bay. Separate thunderstorm areas are located
about the northern NSW coast and offshore from the southeast Queensland coast. A
low pressure trough, southerly wind change and associated upper trough is
responsible for this weather.

Low cloud with isolated showers is present along the NSW coast and ranges due to
an onshore flow. Mostly clear skies persist over the remainder of southeastern
Australia with a high pressure system located near Tasmania.
