A Complex low together with a surface trough over southeast South Australia are
generating thunderstorms and middle level cloud over the eastern parts of the
state.

A band of middle level cloud can be seen extending from the Great Australian
Bight to the Southern Ocean influenced by an upper level trough.

Isolated thunderstorms along southeast Australian coast and Queensland are due
to moist air mass and day time heating.

Moist tropical airmass over the Top End, Gulf of Carpentaria and central
Australia is producing low level clouds and isolated thunderstorms.

WA is mostly cloud free under the influence of a high pressure ridge.
