Patchy middle level cloud, with embedded thunderstorms, extend over the interior
of Western Australia and the Northern Territory, triggered by a broad surface to
middle level trough. 

A second surface trough extends through Queensland with associated patchy cloud
remnants of previous thunderstorm activity offshore from the eastern Queensland
coast.

A strong cold front is crossing Victoria and Tasmania with low cloud associated
with the front observed in the vicinity of the front. Cold air to the west of
the front is represented by cellular clouds with occasional thunderstorm
activity. Strong winds aloft are associated with the cold front and are causing
standing mountain waves along the NSW southeastern Alpine region where the
resultant banner cloud can be seen streaming over the area.

Some patchy high cloud is drifting across the southwest of WA, meanwhile, the
remaining interior parts of the country are under mostly clear skies.
