Extensive cloud with areas of active storms can be seen across eastern Australia
this afternoon, being driven by a surface trough of low pressure and supported
by an upper trough sitting to the west of the surface feature.

A monsoon trough extends across the north of the country, driving scattered
thunderstorm activity.

A low in the Bight is driving cloudy conditions south of the continent, and
dragging areas of patchy cloud up over southwestern WA.
