The tail-end of a cold front near southeastern QLD is producing some patchy
middle level cloud. The southerly airflow behind this cold front is generating
areas of low level cloud along the NSW coastline.

Middle to high level cloud and isolated thunderstorms over northern parts of WA
and the interior of the NT are associated with an upper level disturbance.

A broad area of high pressure is keeping the rest of the country mostly cloud
free, apart from patchy low level cloud along the southern coastline of mainland
Australia and western TAS in association with an onshore airflow.
