Tropical monsoon activity continues to be visible in the north of the country
with convective cloud and thunderstorms. This particularly visible around
Cyclone Kimi off the coast near Cairns in QLD with visible cyclonic rotation.

A trough along the WA coast is also producing convective cloud and isolated
thunderstorms. This trough extends across the NT, central Qld and in to
northeast NSW bringing a band of mid-high cloud through these regions and
isolated thunderstorms in southeast Qld where a large stream of mid-high cloud
is streaming out across northeast NSW.

A high pressure system south of the Bight is directing low cloud over coastal
parts of southeast WA, SA, Vic and Tas.

The remainder of the continent is mostly clear.
