Widespread showers and isolated thunderstorms are visible on the coast between
Port Stephens (NSW) and Fraser Island (QLD). A low pressure trough just offshore
combining with a slow moving upper trough is generating this weather. Patchy
cloud and showers are evident further north along the Queensland coast due to
onshore winds.

Humid and unsettled conditions persist over the north of the country with
thunderstorms currently active about the Joseph Bonapart Gulf and eastern
Pilbara. Low pressure troughs through Queensland and inland from the west coast
of Western Australia are resulting in patchy cloud some of which is the remnants
from yesterday's thunderstorm activity.

The subtropical ridge is keeping most of southern and central Australia clear.
An upper trough is producing cloud to the south of Western Australia with cold
fronts tracking further south across the Southern Ocean in a westerly airstream.
