A moist northeasterly airflow, directed onto the continent's east coast by a
high pressure system in the Tasman Sea, is interacting with a trough lying
across inland Queensland. This is producing patchy cloud along coastal and
adjacent areas from Queensland through to the New South Wales/Victoria border.

A series of low pressure troughs across northern and central Australia are
drawing moisture from the tropics into a broad area of cloud with showers and
isolated embedded thunderstorms. This cloud extends across northern Western
Australia, through the Northern Territory, southwestern Queensland and eastern
South Australia.

Further west, a weak cold front over the southern parts of the Indian Ocean is
directing a cloud band towards southwestern Western Australia. Areas of low
cloud are also visible along the southern coast of Western Australia.
