The patchy high level cloud band over Tasman Sea off the NSW northeast coast is
associated with an upper level trough. Low level cloud can be seen over the
northeast Queensland coast, produced by a moist southeasterly flow over the
Coral Sea.

A southerly surge of cooler air over Victoria has generated low cloud along the
coast. 

A large pool of cold, unstable air is behind a frontal system moving across the
Tasman Sea. This is evident by the sizeable area of speckled, low level
convective cells to the southeast of Tasmania.

In the west, a surface trough has produced a cloud band over southern WA.

The rest of the country is mostly clear with light winds, under the influence of
a high pressure ridge.
