Cloud across the top end of Australia is associated with the monsoon trough that
is extending from the Top End of the Northern Territory through Torres Strait
and out into the Coral Sea to the developing tropical low near the Solomon
Islands. The cloud is mostly middle and high level cloud with embedded

Southeasterly trade flow is producing low level cloud along coastal parts of
Queensland, and the tail end of a low pressure trough is moving through central
NSW with associated heavy shower activity.

A high pressure system near the Bight is directing onshore southerly airflow to
southeastern parts of Australia and is generating low level cloud and showers
over the Southern Ocean and along the southern coastline of NSW and VIC.  

Extensive cloud over Tasmania is associated with a vigorous westerly airstream. 

Isolated thunderstorms along the northern WA coastline is associated with a
surface trough.
