A low pressure system is located on the southern west coast of Western
Australia, producing cloud and thunderstorms over southwest WA and surrounding
ocean waters. Further high and middle level cloud generated by the low extends
through Victoria and Bass Strait.

A middle level cloud band extends from northwest WA to the Bight, associated
with a trough. Cloud is streaming further through South Australia and New South
Wales.

A broad ridge of high pressure is affecting the eastern states and the Northern
Territory. Low cloud has formed in moist air trapped under the high pressure
system near southern Victoria and Tasmania. There are also some coastal showers
along the east coast produced by moist onshore flow. The remainder of the area
under the influence of the ridge is mainly free of cloud.
