The patchy high level cloud band over southeast Queensland is associated with an
upper level trough. Low level cloud can be seen over the east Queensland coast,
produced by a moist southeasterly flow over the Coral Sea.

A southerly surge of cooler air over Victoria has generated low cloud along the

A large pool of cold, unstable air is behind a frontal system moving across the
Tasman Sea. This is evident by the sizeable area of speckled, low level
convective cells to the south of the continent and western Tasmania.

In the west, a surface trough has produced a cloud band with embedded
thunderstorms over southern WA. A low pressure system near Esperance is drawing

in low cloud.

The rest of the country is mostly clear with light winds, under the influence of
a high pressure ridge.
