An upper level disturbance ahead of a surface trough is generating mid to upper
level cloud and thunderstorms from the Top End and Barkly district in the
Northern Territory extending to eastern parts of Qld, much of NSW, Victoria,
Tasmania and southeast SA. A low pressure system in the Bight and a high to the
south of Tasmania, is also feeding moist northeasterly winds over these regions,
helping in the generating of a large and active cloud band.

A surface trough through southwest WA and a moist southerly airstream behind the
trough, is generating cloud over much of the southwestern part of WA. 

Moist onshore flow is generating areas of low level cloud over the coastal
region of southern SA and over the Cape York Peninsula in Qld otherwise the rest
of the country is mostly cloud free.
