A middle level cloud band which is associated with a surface trough can be seen
moving across the Great Austraian Bight. High cloud is visible streaming ahead
of the trough and into parts of South Australia and western Victoria. 

Another trough with middle and high level cloud can be seen flowing over
southwest WA and extending further west into the Indian Ocean.

High cloud is streaming across northern coastal parts of Queensland and out over
the Coral Sea ahead of an upper level trough.

The remainder of the continent is mainly cloud free under the influence of a
high pressure ridge extending across central Australia.
