The dominant feature in the tropical north of the country is an active monsoon
trough, which is causing convective cloud and thunderstorms and has several
embedded lows. The low east of the Gulf of Carpentaria is persistent, as is a
low in the northern Kimberley region, both with areas of deep convective cloud
and lightning.

A surface trough extends from interior NT through Qld, central NSW producing

A cold front and low is developing just over the SA coast in the Bight which can
be seen as mid-high level cloud.

A large mid to high level cloud band in the Tasman Sea is still connected to the
coast of NSW. 

The remainder of the continent is mostly cloud free.
