A low and inland trough in southwest Western Australia is generating some middle
and upper level cloud over the central Australia and northern and eastern parts
of South Australia. 

A deep low in the Tasman Sea extends a cold front back to the northern New South
Wales coast. A cool southerly airstream behind the cold front is bringing
scattered low cloud along the coastal areas of Victoria, Tasmania and New South

A high south of the southeast coast of South Australia and west of Tasmania is
bringing onshore flow along southern coastal areas of South Australia and
Victoria, generating areas of low cloud.

The rest of the continent is mostly cloud free apart from some patchy cloud
through the tropics.
