A band of patchy middle level cloud stretching across central WA and into
western parts of SA is associated with a trough. Thunderstorms are visible in
the vicinity of this trough. 

Patchy low level cloud over the southwest corner of WA is being driven by a
moist onshore airflow.

An inland surface trough extending from central QLD to central NSW is generating
an extensive band of middle to high level cloud. A line of thunderstorms are
visible near the eastern flank of this trough.

Onshore trade flow is producing patchy low level cloud along parts of the
eastern coastline of QLD.

Thunderstorms driven by surface convergence can be seen across parts of the Top
End.
