A broad area of cloud with embedded thunderstorms covers large parts of Western
Australia and extends into the Top End of the Territory. This cloud is
associated with an inland trough over WA. Isolated thunderstorms can also be
seen off the northern tip of Queensland while a developing tropical low lies
well to the east in the Coral Sea.

Areas of cloud wrapping around a deep, slow-moving low pressure system in the
Tasman Sea cover parts of Tasmania, eastern Victoria and the far southeast of
New South Wales. Isolated thunderstorms can also be seen just off the northern
New South Wales coast.

The remainder of Australia is mostly cloud free.
