A band of middle to high level cloud is streaming from the Kimberley through
central Australia to the Flinders district of South Australia. This is the
result of an upper level trough aligned through the western interior. Isolated
embedded thunderstorms are identifiable through the Kimberley.

Cloud covers the Peninsula district of Queensland while high level cloud is
drifting over the far southwest of Western Australia ahead of cold front well to
the west. 

Fog patches are visible over southern Victoria and the agricultural districts of
South Australia. Westerly winds are bringing patchy cloud to coastal Victoria
and across Tasmania. Southerly winds are resulting in patchy cloud and showers
off the east coast.

High pressure is keeping the remainder of Australia mostly clear.
