A trough of low pressure stretching over central Western Australia is producing
a large mass of middle level cloud and thunderstorms. Middle and high level
cloud is streaming from this system across the Bight to southern Victoria and
Tasmania. 

A cloud band associated with a trough is approaching Tasmania from the west,
with cold air to the west of this system producing large areas of speckled cloud
in the Bight and Southern Ocean.

Another trough extends across northern WA and the Northern Territory, with
showers and thunderstorms occurring along this trough.
