An upper level disturbance ahead of a surface trough is generating mid to upper
level cloud and thunderstorms from the Top End and Barkly district in the
Northern Territory extending to eastern parts of Queensland, much of New South
Wales, Victoria, Tasmania and southeast South Australia. A low pressure system
in the Bight and a high to the south of Tasmania is also feeding moist
northeasterly winds over these regions, helping in the generation of a large and
active cloud band.

A cold front with prefrontal trough extending through Western Australia into the
Bight is generating areas of active cloud and isolated thunderstorms through the
southeast of the state.

Moist onshore flow is generating areas of low level cloud over coastal regions
of southern South Australia and over the Cape York Peninsula in Queensland
otherwise the rest of the country is mostly cloud free.
