A trough over the Coral Sea is generating convective cloud and thunderstorms
near and over the North Tropical Coast of Qld. Convective activity is also
visible over Cape York Peninsula, the Gulf of Carpentaria and across the Arafura

A cold front crossing SA, Vic and Tas is associated with a band of middle to
high level cloud. A broad area of speckled low level cloud follows this front.

A trough over the inland Gascoyne district of WA is generating areas of cloud
and isolated thunderstorms.

The remainder of the country is mainly cloud free, aside from low level cloud
across southwestern WA.
