A mid level cloud band streaching across the Tasman Sea is associated with a
cold front. Area of high cloud over South Australia and adjoining NSW region is
generated by an upper level disturbance.

A broad area of low pressure has generated convective cloud over the Northern
Territory and the Kimberley region of WA.

Onshore southeasterly winds continue to bring areas of low cloud to the
Peninsula and North Tropical Coast districts of Queensland. 

The remainder of the country is mostly clear.
