Convective cloud and thunderstorms are visible across the northern tropics,
associated with an active monsoon trough.

A tropical low associated with an active cloud band has moved inland, crossing
the Pilbara coast. Cloud covers much of the northern and eastern parts of WA and
extends across the inland parts of the continent and into central Qld.

Western WA, SA, Victoria and NSW are mostly clear due to a high pressure system.

There is some low cloud  over the west of Tasmania generated by a westerly flow.
