Humid northwest to northeasterly winds feeding into a broad low pressure trough
and tropical low triggering widespread thunderstorm activity across the north of
the country.

Another low pressure trough extends from NT and links with a strong cold front
moving across the Tasman Sea. Thunderstorms are active near the trough through
the NT, the southern interior of QLD and northeast NSW.

Further south, a westerly airstream is producing areas of low cloud over the
southern coastal parts of the country. While a high pressure ridge means that it
is cloud free over the southern interior.
