Moisture is feeding down from a low pressure southeast of Papua New Guinea,
forming an extensive mass of cloud near the coast of Queensland and over the
Coral and Tasman Seas.

A cloud band is moving across the Tasman Sea, along a surface trough that
connects to a low pressure.

An active monsoon trough south of Indonesia has triggered extensive areas of
thunderstorm activity, while a surface trough connects a low off the Pilbara
coast to another near the southwest of Western Australia. These systems are
creating an extensive cloud band over the interior of Western Australia.

The central and eastern interior of the continent is mostly cloud free under a
ridge of high pressure extending from a high to the southwest of Tasmania.
Patchy high level cloudy can be seen over Tasmania.
