A trough over the Coral Sea is generating convective cloud and thunderstorms
near and over the North Qld coast. Convective activity is also visible over Cape
York Peninsula and the Gulf of Carpentaria.

A cold front is approaching SA, VIC and TAS with an associated band of middle
and high level cloud. The western end of this front is bringing high cloud to
southwest WA.
Extensive low cloud is affecting VIC, TAS and southeast SA ahead of this front.

The remainder of the country is mainly cloud free.
