Afternoon land heating combines with a surface trough to generate thunderstorm
activity over the Gascoyne and the Goldfields districts of WA and about the
Capricornia coast and adjoining central inland regions of Queensland. Further
north, isolated thunderstorm activity visible across the tropical parts of the
continent is associated with a trough.

Mid level cloud band moving across Tasmania is associated with a cold front.

A high pressure ridge is keeping the remainder of the continent mainly cloud
free.
