A broad low pressure trough across northern Western Australia, southern Northern
Territory, and South Australia is producing a patchy cloud band with showers and
isolated embedded thunderstorms.

Tropical moisture and a broad trough over the Northern Territory is triggering
further isolated showers and thunderstorms over the NT's Top End.

A cold front in the Indian Ocean is approaching the southwest of Australia,
directing northwesterly flow onshore. This is producing areas of middle-level
cloud over Western Australia's southwest.

A moist northeasterly airflow, directed onto the continent's east coast by a
high pressure system in the Tasman Sea, is interacting with a trough lying
across inland Queensland. This is producing cloud areas, isolated showers, and
thunderstorms across eastern Australia, mainly in southern Queensland. The
remainder of the eastern half of the continent is scattered with afternoon
convective cloud.
