Isolated thunderstorms are easing over the Top End and the east tropical coast
of Queensland. Interaction of an upper level trough and a surface trough has
produced patchy cloud and isolated thunderstorms near the southeast and central
coasts of Queensland and also northeastern NSW.

A cloud band with a few embedded thunderstorms extends from the Pilbara region
down to the WA/SA border.

Moist onshore flow driven by a high pressure system and ridge belt south of the
Bight is bringing areas of low cloud over southern coasts of SA, VIC, TAS, and
southern WA, while keeping the rest of the country mostly clear.
