Showers continue along the Queensland and northern NSW coast due to fresh
southeasterly winds. The shower activity is more enhanced along the North
Tropical Coast. Further south, a weak trough off the NSW coast and is triggering
isolated showers and storms.

A series of lows, cold fronts and troughs in the Bight are bringing an extensive
area of cloud with embedded thunderstorms over the southeast of the country. The
bulk of the shower activity within this cloud mass is centered around Bass
Straight, ahead of the easternmost cold front.

A deep low pressure system in the Indian Ocean, is driving thick cloud with
embedded thunderstorms west of WA. Some of this moisture is streaming over
central WA on the Sub-Tropical Jet Stream.
