A weakening low pressure system is located off the central west coast of Western
Australia, producing isolated thunderstorms and a small mass of middle level
cloud.

A middle level cloud band extends from northwestern WA across South Australia
and into New South Wales, associated with a middle level trough. Isolated
thunderstorms are observed within the cloud band over the southern interior of
WA, near the SA border.

A cold front is stalling over coastal parts of Victoria and extends to waters
east of Tasmania. The coldest air behind the frontal system now lies over
southern Tasmania, represented by the cellular cloud with occasional
thunderstorm activity.

Patchy low level cloud extends into the central and tropical Queensland coasts
within an onshore flow, generated by a high over Queensland. Skies are clear
over the remainder of QLD and the Northern Territory due the associated ridge of
high pressure.
