A series of low pressure troughs across northern and central Australia are
drawing moisture from the tropics into a broad area of cloud with showers and
embedded thunderstorms across northern and central Australia, and eastern South

A moist northeasterly airflow, directed onto the continent's east coast by a
high pressure system in the Tasman Sea, is producing patchy cloud along coastal
and adjacent areas in Queensland and New South Wales. Tasmania is also covered
with scattered middle-level cloud.
Afternoon heating has produced a field of cellular convective cloud across the
remainder of northern WA, Queensland, northern and western NSW, and western
Victoria. Isolated showers are present with this cloud.

Further west, a weak cold front and its associated cloud band has reached
southwestern Western Australia, bringing some light shower activity.
