An extensive cloud band with embedded thunderstorms is extending from the Indian
Ocean into the northwestern and central parts of the country and is associated
with an upper level trough. A jetstream extends this cloud further eastwards
into the central Queensland and Coral Sea region.

A cold front south of the Bight generates a mid level cloud band. Cold air
behind this front is advecting low cloud over the south coast of WA.

Areas of low clouds over Tasmania, the north Victoria and the Tasman Sea region
are associated with a ridge of high pressure.

Remainder of the country is cloud free.
