A westerly airstream is established over the far south of the continent with a
weakening cold front moving through the Bight. Areas of middle and high level
cloud are drifting ahead of the front across the southeast of Australia. Patchy
low cloud and fog is evident across the southeast mainly over the ranges.
Another frontal systems is visible to the south of Western Australia. 

An upper trough is responsible for the narrow cloud band aligned through
southwest Queensland and the northern interior of NSW. A surface trough off the
NSW coast is triggering showers and isolated thunderstorm activity. 

Onshore easterly winds are resulting in low cloud along the east coast of
Queensland and northeast NSW. Remaining parts of the country are mostly clear
under the influence of a high pressure ridge.
