The subtropical ridge is keeping most of southern and central Australia cloud
free. Low cloud along the New South Wales coast is due to an onshore
southeasterly wind flow directed by the ridge. Isolated thunderstorms are
visible over northeast NSW in a moist and unstable air mass.

A surface trough extends from central Queensland to NSW producing thunderstorms
within the vicinity. Another surface trough extends from the Top End to a weak
low off the coast of Broome through to southwest Western Australia producing
convective clouds and isolated thunderstorms.

A cold front is tracking to the southwest of Western Australia.
