An area of low pressure system across Cape York Peninsula and the tropical north
is generating shower and thunderstorm activity about northern and western
Queensland and northern parts of the NT and WA.

A high pressure ridge over the south of the continent is maintaining mostly
clear conditions with some patchy low cloud evident near coastal parts of
Victoria, NSW and Queensland in a moist southeasterly flow.

Some low cloud is passing over Tasmania and patchy high cloud is over NSW.
