A cold front lies just west of Tasmania with a weak low in the Bass Strait.
Cloud associated with this system covers Tasmania and much of Victoria.

Meanwhile, troughs extend through WA, the NT and eastern SA maintaining unstable
conditions and areas of cloud with a few embedded thunderstorms. An active area
of cloud with thunderstorms covers western NSW. There is another trough with an
associated cloud band and isolated thunderstorms crossing southeastern WA. 

The rest of the country is mostly clear.
