A low pressure system in association with a trough near coastal parts southwest
of WA is generating some low patchy cloud. A seperate low pressure trough over
central WA is producing mid level cloud.

A deep, slow moving low pressure system over the Tasman Sea will continue to
direct low patchy cloud along the NSW coast.

Patchy mid level cloud can be seen extending from inland central Queensland
through to northwest WA, which is associated with a low presure trough and is
triggering some isloated thunderstorms, particularly over northern WA.   

Thunderstorm activity is affecting northern parts of the country.
