The dominant feature in the tropical north of the country is an active monsoon
trough, which is causing convective cloud and thunderstorms and has several
embedded lows. The low in the Gulf of Carpentaria is continuing to develop, with
areas of deep convective cloud and enhanced lightning.

A large region of convective cloud and thunderstorms, associated with a surface
trough, extends from southern WA through the interior of the NT, western Qld and
inland NSW.

A large mid to high level cloud band connects this trough through inland eastern
Australia to a cold front situated in the Tasman Sea. Another cold front and low
pressure system is approaching Tas, bringing bands of low to mid level cloud. 

Moist onshore flow is bringing low level cloud to much of the southern mainland
coastline.
