A band of middle to high level cloud extends through the southern NT, northern
SA and into northwestern NSW. This is the due of an upper level trough.

Patchy middle level cloud extends over the Peninsula district and the tropical
east coast of Queensland. 

High level cloud is drifting over southwest WA ahead of a weakening cold front
which is slipping to the south over the Southern Ocean.

Onshore westerly winds are bringing patchy low level cloud to western Tasmania.
High cloud is visible streaming over the sea in the lee of the mountains off
southeast Tasmania. Southerly winds are resulting in patchy cloud and isolated
showers about parts of the the east coast of Australia.

High pressure is keeping the remainder of Australia mostly clear.
