A trough off the coast of northern Queensland and another in the Gulf of
Carpentaria are generating convective cloud and thunderstorms across the eastern
tropics, particularly over Cape York Peninsula and nearby areas. High level
cloud from these systems is streaming across eastern Qld, north of Brisbane.

A trough along the west coast of WA is generating a band of mainly mid to high
level cloud and covers much of the southern part of WA and extends into western
areas of SA. Meanwhile, a moist onshore flow is generating low level cloud along
southern parts of SA, VIC, TAS and NSW.

The remainder of the country is mainly cloud free apart from areas of convective
cloud about the Kimberley coast and along the northwest coast of NT.
