A complex surface trough system has developed over the inland parts of the
continent with the main trough stretching from southwest WA to central parts of
Northern Territory and extends further into Queensland and central New South
Wales. Areas of cloud and a few thundertorms can be seen near the troughs and
over far southeastern WA and about parts of South Australia.

A moist onshore flow across the coastal areas of Queensland, south of about
Mackay, is producing areas of cloud.
A cold front to the south of the continent  is moving towards Tasmania and the
associated band of cloud extends on to Victoria and Tasmania.

A high pressure system over the southern Tasman Sea is maintaining mostly clear
conditions over eastern NSW apart from areas of low cloud.
