An upper level low and associated trough is responsible for the band of cloud
extending through the eastern interior of Australia. Isolated embedded
thunderstorms are visible with this feature. Onshore winds continue to bring
showers along the Queensland and northern NSW coast, while a weakening cold
front is approaching western Tasmania, with a thin line of cloud stretching west
into the Bight.

A high in the Bight is maintaining clear conditions through central Australia
and most of Western Australia, although high cloud is present across the Pilbara
and Kimberley. Further east, a thin line of high level cloud, associated with a
jet stream, is positioned over the eastern NT merging with the cloud mass over
the eastern interior.

Moisture trapped under the high pressure ridge is causing low cloud over
southern Victoria and Bass Strait, while westerly winds are bringing cloud to
western Tasmania. Afternoon convection is occurring over northern SA into the NT
and across the Gulf Country into the southern Top End.
