Cloud is streaming from central Australia into southern Queensland and northern NSW. Isolated embedded thunderstorms are evident mainly near the Queensland NSW border. In the west, a low pressure trough is producing patchy cloud and isolated thunderstorms about the Pilbara and Gascoyne districts. Further south, a cold front extends from the Bight and approaches the west coast of Tasmania. Patchy high level cloud is streaming ahead of the front over the southeast of the country. Southerly winds are bringing areas of low cloud to the southern coast of Western Australia.
