A significant region of convective and high cloud is present over central
Western Australia and is associated with thunderstorm activity that has
developed due to a trough extending from a low off the Pilbara coast through to
another low off the Gascoyne coast.

Through the centre of the continent, there is a band of high level cloud from
Western Australia into southern Queensland and northern New South Wales
associated with convection.

An active region of thunderstorms is present near a low located off the east
coast of Victoria, covering most of the southeast of the country with high and
mid level cloud. There is convective cloud associated with a trough that extends
from this low through New South Wales. 

A low to the south of Tasmania is generating low level cloud cover across
Victoria and Tasmania.

A ridge in the Bight is driving low level cloud across southern coastal areas of
Western Australia and the coastal areas of South Australia.

The rest of the country is mostly cloud free.
