A low remains slow moving over the Carpentaria district of the NT resulting in
scattered showers and thunderstorms north of Elliott. A low pressure trough
extends through this area across the North Tropical Coast of QLD with further
showers and thunderstorms. 

Another low pressure trough is aligned across the Pilbara through central
Australia then links with a strong cold front moving through central NSW.
Showers and thunderstorms are active near the trough through the NT, the
southern interior of QLD and the northeast and central parts of NSW.

Further south, the strong cold front extends off the central NSW coast over the
Tasman Sea, while a secondary cold front is moving to the east of Bass Strait
and Tasmania. A westerly airstream with areas of low cloud lies over the
southern agricultural areas of SA, southern Victoria and Tasmania.

A high pressure ridge lies over southern districts of Western Australia. Another
high pressure ridge across the Tasman Sea and Coral Sea is directing a north to
northeast airstream over eastern Australia.
