A trough over the Coral sea is generating convective cloud and thunderstorms.

A thick band of middle to high level cloud stretches from the QLD/NSW coastal
border across the Tasman sea due to an upper level trough.

Widespread low level cloud can be seen over southern VIC and TAS due to a moist
westerly flow.

High level cloud is streaming over WA.

The remainder of the country is mainly cloud free.
