A band of patchy middle level cloud stretching across central WA and through SA
is associated with a trough. Isolated thunderstorms are visible within the cloud
band over coastal waters south of SA.  

Patchy low level cloud over the southwest corner of WA is being driven by a
moist onshore airflow.

A surface trough over eastern parts of the Tasman Sea is generating an extensive
band of middle level cloud with embedded thunderstorms that extends back along
the southeast QLD to northeast NSW coastal regions.


Thunderstorms driven by surface convergence can be seen across northwestern
parts of the Top End and offshore.
