A broad trough extends across eastern Queensland to the Tasman Sea, producing
some patch low level cloud across QLD. A band of active thunderstorms are
observed to the east of Brisbane, over the Coral Sea. 

A cold front is moving across northeastern New South Wales, with only patchy low
cloud now associated with this feature over land. Meanwhile the pool of cold air
behind the front now lies across southern coastal areas of NSW. A broad low
pressure over the Tasman Sea has triggered numerous thunderstorms embedded
within middle level cloud.

A trough and tropical low to the north of the Northern Territory are producing
widespread thunderstorms, with some high cloud from these storms being brought
down over northern Australia.

Isolated thunderstorms over the Gascoyne and Pilbara districts of Western
Australia are due to a surface trough, which is also producing middle level
cloud. An upper level jetstream is streaming some high level cloud over the
remaining southern and interior parts of WA.
