Broad areas of low cloud lie over the southeast coast of Australia from northern
NSW, through to eastern SA including VIC and TAS. This is due to an onshore flow
directed both by the passage of a cold front and building of a high pressure
ridge across southeast Australia.

Extensive convective clouds, including thunderstorms, are present over northern
WA. They are being generated due to a nearby surface and the afternoon heat
triggering convective cells within the moist unstable airmass.

An extensive area of mid to high level cloud is also present over the interior
of the continent extending through SA and western VIC. This is due to an upper
level disturbance.
