A trough stretches from Darwin southeast to near Brisbane and connects to a cold
front that extends across the Tasman Sea to the south island of New Zealand.
Afternoon convective cloud is developing along the trough, with isolated
thunderstorms near its northern tip. An extensive area of mid-level cloud is
streaming ahead of the cold front with embedded thunderstorm activity.

A low east of Tasmania extends a cold front into eastern Victoria. The resulting
southwesterly airstream is bringing areas of low cloud with scattered showers
southern and eastern Victoria, and southeastern Tasmania. Isolated thunderstorms
are occurring over eastern Victoria along the trough.

In the west, a band of mid level cloud with scattered showers and embedded
thunderstorms extends over the South West Land Division. This is associated with
a broad low complex with the main centre near Perth and a secondary centre near
Albany.

High level jetstream cloud is crossing NSW while onshore winds are causing low
cloud along the east coast of Cape York.
