Two lines of thunderstorms between the New South Wales coast and Norfolk Island.
These is associated with troughs north of a weakening cold front crossing the
Tasman Sea. Strong westerly flow west of this front is bringing low cloud to
western Tasmania.

Another cloud band associated with a strong cold front is moving over Western
Australia and the Bight. The cold front is bringing showers west of a line from
Shark Bay to Kalgoorlie. The patchy cloud west of this system indicates a large
pool of cold, unstable air with showers and isolated thunderstorms.

A band of high-level jetstream cloud sits above the cold front and stretches
from the central Bight to southern NSW.

Onshore winds are bringing low cloud to parts of Cape York Peninsula and the
eastern Top End. A large high pressure system over the eastern part of the
country is responsible for keeping the rest of the country mainly cloud free.
