Middle to high level cloud is streaming across the southwest of the continent.
An active trough of low pressure over the interior of Western Australia has
generated a broad cloud feature with embedded thunderstorms.

Similarly, thunderstorms are still being generated near a low pressure centre
over the central NT. High cloud over the Top End is the product of thunderstorm
activity earlier today and last night. Thunderstorms also extend along a trough
from central to southeast Queensland. 

An area of middle level cloud is quickly dissipating over northeast NSW.

A well defined line of thunderstorms stretches across the central Tasman Sea to
the south island of New Zealand and is associated with a cold front and
pre-frontal trough. Thunderstorms are further observed in the cold unstable air
to the west of this cold front, east of Tasmania.

Low level convective cloud is streaming across Tasman and coastal Victoria in a
fresh westerly airstream.
