A surface trough and associated upper level trough are generating a cloud band
that is moving off the east coast of Queensland, extending out over the Coral
and Tasman Seas to New Zealand.

A weakening low pressure system over southern central Australia is generating
areas of patchy middle level cloud and isolated thunderstorms over South
Australia, southern Northern Territory, southwestern QLD, and northwestern New
South Wales. 

Southerly flow is bringing low cloud to the southeastern coast of Western
Australia. Middle and high level cloud associated with a strong cold front are
visible southwest of WA.

Patchy cloud associated with a low pressure trough is moving up from the south
over Tasmania, Victoria, and southern NSW. This feature is producing isolated
thunderstorms in eastern Victoria and southeastern NSW.
