An area of middle level cloud extends over western areas of Queensland, New
South Wales and Victoria, and is associated with a slow moving surface trough. 

A cold front is moving east through the central parts of South Australia,
producing showers and thunderstorms in the area. The moist southerly flow behind
this front is generating areas of low cloud about the southeastern coastal area
of Western Australia. A high is directing a moist onshore flow to the remaining
southern coastline of WA, and patchy low level cloud is present in this area.

A low pressure system is still seen rotating over the central Tasman Sea.
