A trough arches over northern parts of the country sweeping through WA, across
the NT before extending down through QLD, triggering isolated thunderstorms and
patchy cloud in the vicinity of the trough.

A band of middle level cloud extends over the Great Australian Bight with the
edged of the cloud band patchy over southeastern parts of WA. The cloud band is
associated with an upper level trough. A second patchy cloud band extends over
eastern parts of Victoria then down over the Tasman Sea and is associated with a
second upper level trough.

The remainder of Australia is relatively clear under the influence of a high
pressure ridge.
