A low pressure system is located on the southwest coast of Western Australia,
producing cloud and thunderstorms over southwest WA and surrounding ocean
waters. Speckled cloud is forming in the cold pool to the north of the low,
producing some showers. A middle level cloud band extends from northwest WA to
the south coast, associated with a trough.

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 free of cloud.
