A patchy cloud band extends along a broad area of low pressure centred over
central Western Australia through northern South Australia to southern
Queensland. There is isolated thunderstorm activity throughout this low pressure

Cold air west of a cold front and low over New Zealand is producing large areas
of speckled cloud over the Tasman Sea. A weak surface trough crossing western
Bight waters is combining with an upper trough to produce a cloud band with
embedded thunderstorms.

Isolated thunderstorms are also occurring over the Gulf of Carpentaria.
