A trough of low pressure persists across inland areas of the Northern Territory,
Queensland and New South Wales triggering some showers and thunderstorms.

Areas of cloud and active thunderstorms cover much of inland Western Australia
due to an infeed of moisture and an upper trough to the west.

An active cold front is now over southeast New South Wales. This front has an
associated cloud band and an area of low cloud lies in its wake over Tasmania
and southern Victoria.

Thunderstorm activity continues over the tropical north of the country.
