Weakening surface and upper level troughs are causing mostly middle level cloud
over central NSW. 

A surface trough over northern WA is responsible for the thunderstorm activity
around that area.

A broad upper trough over the Bight and southern WA is causing an extensive area
of cloud over eastern WA, through SA, southern VIC and Tasmania. Isolated
thunderstorms can be seen within this cloud band mostly over central SA and near
Kangaroo Island.

A slow-moving high pressure system over the Tasman Sea is directing
southeasterly winds and areas of low cloud onto the northern NSW and QLD coasts.

A surface trough and low pressure system are responsible for thunderstorms over
the Torres Strait and Arafura Sea.
