The patchy middle-level cloud band over eastern Queensland is associated with an
upper trough and the jet stream. A thick rain band is evident over southern WA
with high-level cloud streaming ahead of this system to the Bight.

A high pressure system over South Australia is directing a moist onshore airflow
over the southeast of Australia, leading to areas of patchy low cloud near the

Overcast conditions over central Tasmania as the moist westerly airflow pushes
up against the West Coast Range.

The rest of the country is mostly clear due to the high pressure system.
