The patchy middle-level cloud band over the Coral Sea is associated with an
upper trough and the jet stream. A thick rain band is evident over southern WA
with high-level cloud streaming ahead of this system across the Bight. 

A high pressure system near western New South Wales is directing a moist onshore
airflow over the southeast of Australia and the Queensland coast, leading to
areas of patchy low cloud.

The rest of the country is mostly clear due to the high pressure system.
