Active thunderstorm activity continues over the Tropical north of the country. A
trough of low pressure extends from near the Top End through central Queensland
to the eastern parts of NSW, triggering isolated thunderstorms over central
Queensland and northeastern NSW.

Areas of active isolated thunderstorms and patchy areas of cloud cover much of
Western Australia and southwestern parts of South Australia, and are associated
with a broad area of low pressure. The low pressure troughs over the Bight has
generated an extensive area of middle-level cloud that extends east to cover
Tasmania and southern Victoria.

Remainder of the country remains mostly clear.
