A broad area of cloud with embedded thunderstorms covers large parts of Western
Australia and extends into the Top End of the Territory. This cloud is
associated with an inland trough over WA. A few diurnal thunderstorms can also
be seen near the tropical north coast of Queensland.

Areas of cloud wrapping around a deep low pressure system in the Tasman Sea
cover parts of Tasmania, eastern Victoria and the far southeast of New South
Wales. The remainder of Australia remains mostly cloud free.
