Cloud with isolated thunderstorms extending from the northwest of WA into SA,
VIC and NSW is due to a surface and an upper level trough. Patchy high cloud can
be seen streaming across the southeast of the country ahead of the upper level
trough.

Low cloud can be seen near the NSW, southern QLD and the southwest WA coasts
with onshore winds.

Cloud band associated with a cold front can be seen to the south of WA while
another cold front is approaching Tasmania.

A high pressure system centered over eastern NSW extends a ridge along
Queensland's east coast. This is causing mostly clear conditions over land areas
in the tropical north. Isolated thunderstroms can be seen over waters to the
north of the continent.
