A cloud band associated with a cold front and trough is bringing rain to
northeastern New South Wales and eastern Queensland. A combination of troughs
and low pressure systems are producing isolated showers and thunderstorms along
the western coasts of Western Australia.

The high pressure system over the Bight is bringing areas of low cloud to parts
of the continent's south coast and Tasmania, while keeping the rest of the
country mostly clear.
