A high pressure system located over NSW extends a ridge across the country.
Clear skies are evident across the eastern and northern interior of Australia.
Southeasterly winds are bringing areas of low cloud along the Queensland coast
while an upper trough is responsible for the cloud streaming from north
Queensland across the Coral Sea.

Further south, low cloud is visible over Victoria and Tasmania due to a westerly
airstream. A cold front embedded in the westerly airstream is approaching
Tasmania. Middle to high level cloud extends over southern districts of Western
Australia and the Bight while a strong cold front is visible to the southwest of
Western Australia.
