A trough extends from off the Kimberley coast to a low over inland Gascoyne
district to the south coast of WA while a cold front is approaching the
southwest corner of WA. A large area of mid to upper level cloud with a few
embedded thunderstorms covers much of the northern , eastern and southern parts
of WA and extends into the NT and western parts of SA.

Another trough through the central part of the country extends through southwest
Qld, northeast NSW and into the Tasman Sea. Areas of cloud and a few
thunderstorms can be seen to the north and east of this trough.

The southeastern part of the country including Tasmania, the central eastern
parts of Qld and the central western parts of WA is mostly cloud free.
