Cold, speckled cloud which brought showers and wintry conditions to the
south-east of the country is continuing to move out into the Tasman Sea on
Sunday evening. In its wake is a large area of low cloud in the Bight.

However, conditions over remaining southern parts of the country are clearing as
a strong high pressure system continues to build and move east.

The rest of Australia remains mainly cloud free, apart from the convective cloud
across parts of the tropics.
