An upper low together with a surface trough stretching from the Gulf of
Carpentaria to eastern South Australia are generating thunderstorms and middle
level cloud all the way from the Gulf to near Mount Gambier.

A band of middle level cloud can be seen extending south from Tasmania then
southeast into the Southern Ocean, influenced by an upper level trough. 

A moist tropical airmass and a trough stretching from southern parts of WA to
the Top End is producing low level cloud and isolated thunderstorms.

A moist, unstable airmass has caused thunderstorms over eastern Victoria and
NSW.
Southerly winds are causing low cloud over the Great Australian Bight and parts
of the South Australian coast.
