A low over the Tasman Sea is driving strong winds and showers onto the NSW coast. A trough is taking rain in eastern QLD off the east coast. Another trough is causing a few showers over northern and western SA. A weak front is bringing cold, showery winds to VIC and TAS.
A low will move offshore allowing rain to ease, however an unstable southwesterly airflow enhanced by upper cold air will maintain showers over SA, NSW, VIC and TAS. A moist southeasterly airflow will produce light showers over QLD's tropical coast and the Top End.
A moist onshore breeze enhanced by upper cool air will produce showers over the coast and ranges of NSW and southeast QLD. A westerly airflow will also produce showers over southern parts of VIC and TAS. A front will impact southwestern parts of WA delivering gusty cool showers.
A cold front will move over southern and western parts of WA generating gusty cool showers and the odd thunderstorm. A high pressure ridge should maintain stable conditions over much of the east, with the exception of northeastern NSW. A cold front may generate showers over TAS.
A low should move over the Great Australian Bight, with an associated front extending over southern parts of WA and western SA generating showers. An associated trough should extend north over western parts of the NT and northern parts of WA.
A slow moving low should continue to cross the Great Australian Bight with an associated trough generating showers from northern WA, over the NT and SA to western parts of NSW and VIC. A moist southwesterly airflow should generate showers over southern WA.
