A trough extending from northwest Western Australia into the Bight is bringing
areas of rain, showers and thunderstorms to southwest WA. Extensive areas of
cloud and embedded thunderstorms lie to the north of a second trough that
extends through outback WA and the southern Northern Territory.

A high pressure system in the Tasman Sea is maintaining mostly clear conditions
across Victoria, South Australia and New South Wales. A cold front moving across
the Bight is producing a band of high and middle level cloud, mainly over ocean.
The cold air to the west of this front is producing large areas of speckled
cloud over the Indian Ocean.
