A high pressure system over the eastern Bight is directing low-level cloud over
southeast Australia in a weak moist onshore flow. 

The remnants of Tropical Cyclone Nathan are off the north Kimberley coast.
Middle level cloud is streaming southwards from this area. Embedded
thunderstorms are visible over northern parts of the Kimberley, mostly offshore.
A surface trough over northwest and central Queensland has also triggered some
convective activity from the southeast Gulf of Carpentaria through to central
and eastern Queensland. 

The middle to upper-level cloud resulting from vigorous convective activity
yesterday over western WA has now advected over South Australia and eastern WA.
