A deep trough and cold front is moving east over southern Australia. Mid-high
level cloud extends from central inland parts of WA through SA to eastern Bight
waters and adjancent parts of Victoria, Tasmania and western NSW. A milder
onshore flow west of this system is extending low-level clouds over western
coastal parts of SA and southern coastal parts of WA.

Elsewhere residual mid-high level cloud remains over northern parts of the
continent, remnants of overnight shower and thunderstorm activity. Moderate
onshore winds are bringing patchy cloud to coastal parts of Queesland. Lastly,
in the visible imagery, extensive areas of smoke is evident over broad parts of
eastern Queensland and central and eastern parts of NSW, more concentrated near
ongoing fires.
