A large cloud band ahead of a broad upper trough extends from the Pilbara region of WA into the interior and across most of northern and central Australia. The cloud band originates from an area of convection around a tropical low near the Cocos Islands.
Further south, a low pressure system is located offshore south of the Great Australian Bight, and is generating cloud associated with showers and thunderstorm activity.
In a southerly airstream, areas of low cloud are visible over coastal regions of Tasmania, eastern Victoria, New South Wales and southwestern WA.
