Cloud with embedded thunderstorm activity is over the Coral Sea and the north
Queensland coast. This is due to a surface low pressure trough and an upper
level disturbance. Onshore easterly winds are resulting in areas of low cloud
over the remainder of eastern QLD.

In the southeast is another cloud band, associated with a cold front over
Tasmania. This system is drawing moisture down from the QLD tropics.

A mass of middle level cloud lies west of WA.
