The wispy high cloud streaming across NSW and Victoria is associated with an
upper level subtropical jet stream over the region. 

A moist onshore flow across southeast Australia has produced overcast low cloud
conditions along areas to the windward side of the southeast and eastern ranges.

A strong southeast trade flow over the northern Coral Sea is bringing low cloud
to the east coast of Far North Queensland. 

A large pool of cold, unstable air is behind a frontal system moving across New
Zealand. This is evident by the sizeable area of speckled, low level convective
cells over the Tasman Sea and eastern Great Australian Bight.

In the west, a surface trough has produced a cloud band over central and
southern WA including low cloud over southwest WA.

The rest of the country is mostly clear with light winds, under the influence of
a high pressure ridge.
