A deep low pressure system to the distant south of Tasmania is represented by a
spiralling mass of cloud. On the northern flank of this low, spotty convective
cloud has formed within the coldest air, which is producing showers and isolated
thunderstorms across Tasmania, through Bass Strait and across the southern
Tasman Sea.

Patchy low cloud lies across southern South Australia, through southern and
central parts of New South Wales and near the ranges in Victoria. 

A small area of middle level cloud lies through the interior of Western
Australia.

The remainder of the country is generally clear due to a ridge of high pressure
extending into the central interior from a strong high to the west of Western
Australia.
