A band of mostly middle level cloud stretches from the northeast parts of South
Australia, across northern New South Wales and into the Tasman Sea. This is
associated with an upper trough.

In the south, a cold front is moving across the Southern Ocean with the tail end
of this front brushing the far southwest parts of Western Australia. High cloud
is streaming across Tasmania, ahead of the front while low cloud is affecting
the southwest parts of Western Australia.

Onshore wind is bringing low cloud to coastal parts of the Peninsula District in
far north Queensland.

The rest of the country remains relatively cloud free due to a ridge of high
pressure.
