A broad middle and upper level cloud band extends from the interior of WA across parts of SA, Victoria, New South Wales and Tasmania. Isolated thunderstorms are visible within the band over southern WA and western SA. The cloud is associated with a broad area of low pressure. High cloud is streaming from this system through central Australia and Queensland. Middle level cloud and isolated thunderstorms are present near the Kimberley coast of WA.

Low level cloud is visible over SW Western Australia with some high cloud streaks just to the east. A cloud band is approaching from the west ahead of a cold front.

Other areas remain mainly cloud free.
