An extensive area of cloud with shower and thunderstorm activity is associated
with the monsoon trough and a low in the Coral Sea.

A area of low pressure system across the Cape York Peninsula and the tropical
north is generating shower and thunderstorm activity near northern and western
Queensland and northern parts of the NT and WA.

A high pressure ridge over the south of the continent is maintaining mostly
clear conditions with some patchy low cloud evident near the coastal parts of
NSW and Queensland in a moist southeasterly flow.

A cloud band associated with a cold front has moved to the east of Tasmania,
with some low cloud passing over Tasmania and high cloud crossing parts of South
Australia, Victoria and NSW.
