A slow moving high near New Zealand extends a ridge along the Queensland coast.
Moist onshore winds are persisting with patchy low cloud over eastern districts
of Queensland.

A cloud band is streaming through the interior of the country and merges with a
trough moving across NSW and and a cold front over the Tasman Sea. The
atmosphere is particularly unstable along the edge of the cold front with an
active line of thunderstorms evident. This cold front extends further south to
connect with an intensifying low pressure centre located just to the southeast
of Tasmania.

Afternoon shower and thunderstorm activity can be seen across the Top End of the
Northern Territory.

Mostly clear across the remainder of the country apart from patchy low cloud
along the southern Western Australia coast.
