A broad area of low pressure extends over large parts of northern Australia
causing cloud with embedded thunderstorms over much of the Northern Territory,
as well as northern and central WA and Queensland.

A cloud band associated with a cold front has now moved over the Tasman Sea,
leaving convective cloud in the cold air behind it about Tasmania.

The rest of the country remains mostly clear apart from some low cloud along the
southern coast.
