Extensive cloud with thunderstorm activity is over the Coral Sea and adjacent
Queensland coast. This is due to a surface low pressure trough near the QLD
coast combining with an upper level disturbance to the west.

Cloud is streaming from northwest South Australia to south of Tasmania ahead of
a coupled low pressure trough and cold front. 

An area of low cloud is over southwest WA in the onshore flow driven by the high
pressure system.
