A complex low pressure system over the border region of South Australia and
Western Australia is moving east with a band of cloud and emebbed thunderstorms.
Some middle and upper level cloud also lingers to the north, across inland parts
of WA.

Thunderstorm activity is also observed across the tropical north of the country,
triggered in part by a broad area of low pressure combined with afternoon and
evening surface heating.

A southeasterly airstream along the central and tropical coast of Queensland is
generating patchy areas of low cloud.

Higher level cloud is observed crossing Tasmania and southwestern Victoria,
streaming eastwards from the Bight.

The remainder of the country is mostly cloud free.
