generating convective cloud and thunderstorms across the eastern tropics,
particularly about the North Tropical Coast of Qld. High level cloud from these
systems is streaming across southeastern Qld.

A cold front has passed the southeastern states with a band of middle and high
level cloud in the Tasman Sea. A broad area of cold low level cloud follows this
front.

A trough to the west generating mid to high level cloud band which is streaming
