A cloud band with isolated embedded thunderstorms extends through the interior
of Western Australia and western parts of South Australia to the Bight. This
feature is associated with an upper trough. High level cloud is streaming from
the Indian Ocean across Gascoyne connecting to this cloud band. Further south, a
cold front is moving through southern districts of Western Australia as a
stronger secondary front is clipping the southwest coast.

High pressure dominates the southeast of the country with clear skies inland
from the divide. Areas of fog and low cloud are visible over southern Victoria
and about the coast and ranges of NSW. Higher level cloud is streaming over
Tasmania as a cold front drifts to the south. Onshore winds combining with a low
pressure trough are producing showers and isolated thunderstorms about the
southern Queensland and northern NSW coast. More enhanced activity is displaced
further offshore.

Mostly clear skies over the remainder of Australia apart from patchy high level
cloud across the north.
