A broad band of high and middle level cloud extends from northern Queensland
over the Coral Sea, associated with an upper trough.

A complex low pressure system lies over the Tasman Sea and a large area of cold
air convective cloud associated with the low can be seen just to the east of the
continent. Patchy low cloud remains about parts of Tasmania and Victoria within
the southerly airstream well to the west of the complex low.

A weakened frontal band is located over southern of WA. High cloud in advance of
this weakened front is associated with a surface trough and the jet stream and
is streaming from the northwest of WA to southern South Australia. Another front
with embedded thunderstorms is approaching from the southwest.
