Low level convergence combined with an upper level trough is generating isolated
showers and thunderstorms along the northern NSW coastline and adjacent ranges.

A middle to high level cloud band with embedded thunderstorms over northern
parts of WA and the interior of the NT is associated with an upper level
disturbance. Patchy cloud is also visible across the far southwest of WA.

A broad area of high pressure is keeping the rest of the country mostly cloud
free, apart from some patchy low level cloud through southeastern SA,
southwestern VIC and western TAS in association with an onshore airflow.
