A trough extends from central Australia through eastern South Australia to a low
over the Great Australian Bight and is generating middle level cloud and
isolated thunderstorms. Cloud from this system also extends on to southern parts
of Queensland and western parts of NSW.

A weakening cold front lies to the southwest of Western Australia. Cloud band
ahead of the front can be seen over the southwest coast of WA.

Patches of low cloud over the east coast of Queensland and New South Wales coast
is due to an on shore southeast wind flow.

A surface trough to the northwest of Australia has generated broad area of cloud
and thunderstorms to the far northwest of Australia.
