A trough over the Tasman Sea is producing a large area of thunderstorms west of
Lord Howe Island.

A high pressure system over South Australia is directing a moist westerly
onshore flow over coastal southeast Australia. This has led to coastal showers
and low cloud.

A cold front, with a middle level cloud band can be seen extending from the
southwest coast of Western Australia into the Bight, with speckled cloud to the
west of this front.

Onshore flow of moist oceanic air is producing some low cloud and showers in
north Queensland.

The rest of Australia is predominantly free of cloud due to the stabilising
effects of the subtropical ridge of high pressure over southern Australia.
