Moisture is feeding down from a tropical low pressure system to the southeast of
Papua New Guinea. This moisture is forming an extensive mass of cloud extending
from the Coral Sea into the Tasman Sea.

An active monsoon trough south of Indonesia has triggered extensive areas of
thunderstorm activity with several embedded tropical lows. 

A surface trough connects a low off the Pilbara coast to another off the south
coast of Western Australia. These systems are creating an extensive cloud band
over the interior of Western Australia and into the Bight.

The central and eastern interior of the continent is mostly cloud free under a
ridge of high pressure extending from a high to the southwest of Tasmania.
