A broad area of low pressure extends from the WA interior across central
Australia and through to the western Queensland and northeastern New South
Wales. This is generating areas of mid level cloud with embedded thunderstorms
over central Australia, extending to northeastern SA, southwestern Queensland
and northern parts of New South Wales.

A cloud band associated with a cold front can be seen crossing Tasmania and
western Victoria.
