A broad area of low pressure extends from the central parts of Northern
Territory across Western Australia to west of the Bight, triggering
thunderstorms and a middle level cloud band. A cold front is brushing the
southern coastline of WA, with thunderstorm activity extending towards the
Southern Ocean.

A southeasterly airstream along the central and tropical coast of Queensland is
generating patchy areas of low cloud. Meanwhile, a light and variable airstream
over the southeast of the country is producing patchy low cloud over southern
Victoria and Tasmania.

Remainder of the country is mostly cloud free under the influence of a high
pressure ridge.
