A cold front and associated low is over the Tasman Sea producing middle level
cloud and scattered thunderstorms. Middle level cloud and isolated thunderstorms
are crossing Victoria with patchy midddle level cloud over southeastern South
Australia. Another cold front and cloudband is crossing southwest Western
Australia.

Extensive low level cloud is over ocean waters off the east coast of Australia.
Some of the cloud mas moved over the Queensland east coast due to onshore winds.

A ridge of high pressure is responsible for keeping the rest of the continent
mainly cloud free, with just some patchy high cloud streaming down over northern
Australia.
