A broad area of low pressure extends across northern Australia causing cloud
with embedded thunderstorms over much of the Top End in the Northern Territory,
as well as northern and eastern WA, and the Far North Queensland.

An area of cloud with thunderstorm activity covers eastern New South Wales and
southeast Queensland and is associated with an inland surface trough.

The rest of the country remains mostly clear apart from some low cloud in
Tasmania and along the coast of Victoria.
