A large cloud band stretches from the NT across QLD to the Tasman Sea. This is
being driven by a strong upper level disturbance and a surface trough. The cloud
band has active areas of thunderstorms.

A cold front is crossing the northeastern part of NSW and extends east of VIC
and the Bass Strait to a low centred over central VIC. A large area of active
cloud and thunderstorms is associated with this complex low pressure system and

A surface trough and low in central western region of WA is generating patchy
areas of mainly middle level cloud.
