A surface trough extends from the Pilbara district of Western Australia through
northern parts of South Australia and northeast parts of New South Wales to a
deepening low pressure system over the Tasman Sea. Thunderstorms can be seen in
the vicinity of the trough. 

A moist north to northwest windflow covers a broad area to the north of the
trough, triggering thunderstorms over the Top End in the Northern Territory and
the Gulf of Carpentaria. 

Low level cloud ahead of a weakening cold front can be seen crossing Tasmania.

A large high pressure system in the Bight is keeping the southern half of the
continent largely cloud free.
