Weakening surface and upper level troughs are causing mostly middle level cloud
over NSW and southern QLD. 

A surface trough over northern WA is responsible for the thunderstorm activity
around that area.

A broad upper trough over the southwest parts of WA is causing an extensive area
of cloud over WA, through SA, southern VIC and Tasmania. Isolated thunderstorms
can be seen within this cloud band mostly over WA and the western parts of SA.

A slow-moving high pressure system over the Tasman Sea is directing
southeasterly winds and areas of low cloud onto the QLD coasts.

A surface trough and low pressure system are responsible for thunderstorms over
the far northern parts of the country.
