Scattered low cloud is over the northern New South Wales coast in an onshore
airstream.

A broad area of low pressure over the north of the continent is bringing areas
of middle and high level cloud with thunderstorm activity.

A large thunderstorm complex is over the southern WA coast near Esperance. This
is caused by a low pressure cell centred over the Goldfields district.
