A cloud band associated with a cold front and trough is bringing rain to
northeastern Queensland. 

A combination of heat troughs and heat low  are producing isolated showers and
thunderstorms across northern and western parts of Australia.

The high pressure system over the Bight is bringing areas of low cloud to the
continent's southeast coast and Tasmania, while keeping the rest of the country
mostly clear.
