Low cloud along the New South Wales coast is due to an onshore southeasterly wind flow directed by the ridge. Isolated thunderstorms are visible over northeast NSW in a moist and unstable air mass. A surface trough extends from central Queensland to NSW producing thunderstorms within the vicinity. Another surface trough extends from the Top End to a weak low off the coast of Broome through to southwest Western Australia producing convective clouds and isolated thunderstorms. A cold front is tracking to the southwest of Western Australia.
