A band of cloud covers much of NSW and eastern Victoria associated with an east
coast low, just off the central NSW coast.

A high in the Great Australian Bight is extending an onshore flow over South
Australia, Tasmania and Victoria and is generating low level cloud mainly along
the coastal regions and west Victoria.

Patchy low cloud is also visible along the southern coast of Western Australia.

Rest of Australia is mostly clear due to the high extending a ridge across the
central part of the country.
