A low pressure system slowly tracking westwards across the Coral Sea is
directing low level cloud over the northeast NSW and southeast QLD coast.
A broad surface trough of low pressure across northern Australia has generated a
large field of convective cloud. Combined with high surface moisture and diurnal
heating, thunderstorms have developed over Cape York Peninsula and northern WA.
High level cloud is evident through central Australia and is brought eastwards
by the upper level jetstream.
Another trough of low pressure over southwest WA has produced thunderstorms in
In the southeast, low level convective cell-based cloud is observed over TAS,
VIC and southeast SA. These are due to the passage of a cold front.
The remainder of Australia is mostly clear.
