An inland surface trough extends from southwest WA to central parts of the
Northern Territory and extends further east into central parts of Queensland.

Unstable conditions near and to the south of the trough has produced areas of
active cloud and thunderstorms while a high pressure system over the southeast
of the continent is maintaining mostly clear conditions apart from areas of low
cloud.

A cold front to the south of WA is moving east with an associated band of cloud
while another frontal system has moved east, well into the Tasman Sea.
