A low pressure trough extends from northeastern NSW through to central
Australia, the NT and down the WA coast. Areas of cloud with isolated
thunderstorms are occurring near the trough, particularly over southern QLD,
northeast NSW and about central and northern WA.

A band of mid to high level cloud extends from the Kimberley through the central
part of the country and across northern NSW.

Areas of cloud can be seen over TAS, associated with a cold front.

The remainder of the continent is mostly cloud free apart from areas of low
cloud about the coastal areas of southwest WA, NSW and QLD.
