Areas of middle level cloud with embedded thunderstorms cover large parts of
Western Australia as well as adjacent parts of Northern Territory and the Top
End. This cloud is due to a surface trough which stretches from central parts of
Western Australia into the Northern Territory and also a slow-moving upper low
just off the WA west coast.

Isolated diurnal thunderstorms can be seen about parts of Tropical North
Queensland and over eastern districts of New South Wales. Tropical cyclone Ola
remains well to the east of Queensland in the Coral Sea.

Patchy low cloud about Tasmania, southern Victoria and southern coastal areas of
South Australia lie within a moist southerly airflow to the east of a
slow-moving high pressure system.
