A broad area of low pressure stretches across northern Australia and extends
down western WA to the southwest of the state. This is causing cloud with
isolated thunderstorms in a broad band from the north to the southwest of WA,
over the Top End of the Northern Territory and over Far North Queensland.

A cloud band has formed along the Queensland southern coast near a trough. Areas
of cloud and thunderstorms are visible near the NSW coast and over the Tasman
Sea associated with a developing low.

The rest of the country remains mostly clear apart from some low cloud along the
southern coast and also over Tasmania.
