A monsoon trough extends eastward from a low in the central Northern Territory,
with extensive cloud and embedded thunderstorms along its axis. A trough extends
westward from this low into northern Western Australia with isolated convection
to its north. 

A trough extends through inland Queensland to the coastline and offshore, with
scattered low to mid level cloud in proximity. Isolated thunderstorm activity
continues along the north Queensland coastline.

Some isolated thunderstorms persist in the Gascoyne district of Western
Australia with a nearby a trough which extends northwards into the Pilbara.
Scattered mid to high level cloud is also present.

A trough is moving away from the northeast coast of Tasmania and a significant
cold front is approaching the southeastern states in the bight. There is a thick
band of mid to high level cloud to the west of Tasmania associated with this
cold front.

Regions of low cloud are evident along the southern coastline of the country and
along the southeastern seaboard.

The rest of the country is mostly cloud free.
