A trough stretches from the Top End to southeast Queensland with patchy cloud
near the trough. A low south of New Zealand extends a cold front to near Lord
Howe Island. This front is signified by a mid-level cloud band with embedded
thunderstorms. Southwesterly airstream behind this front is bringing areas of
low cloud with scattered showers to southern Victoria, and southwestern
Tasmania.

In the west, a band of mid-level cloud extends across the Bight to eastern South
Australia. This is associated with a broad low complex with its main centre near
Albany. There are isolated thunderstorms off the WA south coast near the low, as
well as off the west coast between Perth and Shark Bay due to a trough extending
northwest from the low.

Southern Victoria and western Tasmania are experiencing low cloud due to an
onshore westerly airstream.
