An upper level low and associated surface trough is responsible for the band of
cloud with embedded thunderstorms over southeast Queensland and the central
Queensland coast. Onshore winds continue to bring patchy low to middle level
cloud along the Queensland and northern NSW coast and ranges, extending into
inland NSW and adjacent parts. 

A surface trough is moving over western Tasmania as a band of middle and upper
level cloud, followed closely by a cold front with cool air detailed in the
speckled cloud over the Southern Ocean.

High pressure is keeping central and most of Western Australia clear with
isolated high cloud over northern parts of the country.
