A strong and slow-moving high pressure system in the Bight continues to dominate
the weather pattern over much of Australia. This high pressure system is
directing a cool south-westerly flow over Victoria and parts of New South Wales
and South Australia, resulting in areas of low cloud.

Further low cloud can be observed across parts of Tasmania which is associated
with a cold front that is tracking towards the east. 

High cloud spilling over northern Western Australia and parts of the Northern
Territory is associated with a weak upper trough combining with a nearby jet

A thick cloud band to the south-west of the continent which spirals into a low
pressure system is associated with a very strong cold front moving up from the
Southern Ocean.
