A low in southwest Western Australia is generating some cloud with embedded
thunderstorms in the area and into South Australia. A trough extending from the
low through central Australia, and Queensland is bringing some mid level cloud
to the region with scattered thunderstorms to the southeast of Queensland. 

A cold front off the New South Wales coast is connecting to a low in the Tasman
Sea. A southerly airstream behind the cold front is bringing scattered low cloud
along the coastal areas of Victoria, Tasmania and New South Wales.

A high in the Great Australian Bight is bringing onshore flow along southern
coastal areas of South Australia generating areas of low cloud.

The rest of the continent is mostly cloud free apart from some patchy cloud
through the tropics.
