The Sub-Tropical Ridge, or the belt linking the high pressure systems, stretches across the middle of the continent. Embedded cold fronts with associated cloud are south of this in the vigorous westerly airstream over the Southern Ocean.

A line of jetstream cloud stretches from New South Wales across the Tasman Sea.

Some middle level cloud is visible about the West Kimberley and East Pilbara, WA. Areas of low cloud are over southwest WA in a moist onshore airstream.
