Extensive cloud band with embedded thunderstorms extends from northern WA across
the central NT, the southern Gulf of Carpentaria and into the north Qld coast
near Cairns. This cloud is associated with an active monsoon trough across the
interior of the continent. 

Clouds associated with onshore trade winds persist along the eastern seaboard,
north of Cape Byron to the monsoonal cloud near Cairns,

A large low pressure trough extends down from the central NT across the SA/Qld
border and into NSW and eastern Vic. This trough is associated with an extensive
band of cloud with embedded thunderstorms affecting much of the land areas over
southeastern Australia.

Surface troughs also extend along the western coast of WA and are associated
with isolated thunderstorm activity.

Moist onshore flow is generating low cloud over the majority of Tas and the
coastal fringe of the Great Australian Bight.
