A trough of low pressure is resulting in an extensive cloud band extending from the Kimberley region of Western Australia through central Australia and northern New South Wales to the Tasman Sea. Isolated thunderstorms are evident within the cloud band over the Kimberley.
Another larger area of cloud with isolated thunderstorm activity over southern WA is caused by a surface low and upper level trough.
Cold air behind a cold front now in the Tasman Sea is causing areas of low cloud along the southern coasts of the continent as well as Tasmania, due to onshore winds.
