A cloud band with embedded thunderstorms extends over eastern NSW from the
Tasman Sea. This is associated with a surface trough and a low pressure system
located off the NSW coast. 

Patchy low cloud can be seen about the west coast of Tasmania in a northwesterly
airstream. A surface trough and a weak upper trough is generating patchy middle
level cloud over South Australia. Patchy low cloud is also evident for the
southwest districts of Western Australia.

High cloud is streaming over the southern parts of Western Australia, ahead of
an approaching cold front.

The remainder of the continent is mostly clear under the influence of a high
pressure ridge.
