A low pressure trough extends through much of central Australia down to the
Tasman Sea. This trough is triggering extensive thunderstorm activity throughout
much of the northern half of the country, particularly in QLD where it is
combining with an upper level trough and a moist onshore flow.

Further south the high pressure ridge extends across the Southern Ocean with
low-level cloud seen over southern WA, southern SA, southern VIC and southern
TAS.

A trough and cold front is moving through the Tasman Sea with the northern
extension of the trough bringing middle level cloud with showers and
thunderstorms through eastern NSW.

A trough also lies near the Western Australian coast and is generating
thunderstorms near the low pressure system embedded within the broader trough
over the Gascoyne district.
