Showers and thunderstorms are visible along a surface trough through the
interior of Western Australia. Another surface trough is generating showers and
thunderstorms through central Australia and southern Queensland. A humid
unstable air mass is resulting in the thunderstorm activity over the Top End and
Peninsula district of Queensland. 

High pressure is maintaining clear skies across the southeast of the country
although a little cloud is evident about coastal NSW and Tasmania due to onshore
winds. Patchy cloud is evident over the Bight while southerly winds a producing
low cloud about the far southwest of Western Australia. Further east, a band of
cloud is evident over the southern Coral Sea which extends further southeast
over New Zealand. This is associated with a significant upper level trough and
intense low pressure system near the south island of New Zealand.
