A broad area of low pressure extends from the Top End of Northern Territory
across Western Australia to west of the Bight, triggering thunderstorms and a
middle level cloudband.

A trough over central Queensland is generating isolated thunderstorms. High
cloud is drifting over northern Cape York Peninsula in the outflow from tropical
thunderstorm activity.

A southwesterly airstream over southeast of the country is producing low to mid
level cloud over southern Victoria and Tasmania.

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