A broad low pressure trough lies over western parts of the continent, producing
a patchy cloud band which extends from northern Western Australia, through
southwest Northern Territory, and into South Australia. This feature is
triggering showers and isolated embedded thunderstorms in these areas.

A second trough extends across inland eastern Australia, while a high pressure
system in the Tasman Sea is directing moist northeasterly flow onto the
continent's east coast. These two features are interacting to produce cloud
areas, isolated showers, and thunderstorms mainly through southeast Queensland,
eastern New South Wales, and eastern Victoria.

Tropical moisture and a broad trough over the Northern Territory's Top End is
triggering isolated showers and thunderstorms.
