A mix of high and low cloud over eastern Queensland the southern Coral Sea is
being driven by both an upper level and a surface trough.

Weak surface troughs and an upper disturbance are responsible for the middle
level cloud across parts of Western Australia, western South Australia, and
southern NT. Subsiding air beneath a strong high pressure system west of
Tasmania is trapping moisture near the surface, which is evident as a broad area
of low cloud across southeastern Australia.

The north of the continent remains mostly cloud free.
