Low to middle level cloud over southern parts of South Australia, through
Victoria and southern New South Wales and western Tasmania is due to an onshore
wind flow. 

Middle to high level clouds can be seen over southwest Western Australia due to
an upper level trough.

Middle level cloud over northern tropical Queensland is due to another upper
level trough.

Rest of the Australia is clear due to a high pressure system over SA extending a
ridge over the country.
