A mix of high and low cloud over eastern Qld and northeastern NSW and
northeastern SA is driven by both an upper level and a surface trough.

Weak surface troughs are responsible for the middle level cloud across parts of
WA, SA, and southern NT. Subsiding air beneath a strong high pressure system
west of Tasmania is trapping moisture near the surface, which is evident as a
broad area of low cloud.

The north of the continent remains mostly cloud free.
