Areas of mostly low cloud can be seen off the NSW coast embedded within a
southerly airstream, with low level cloud also persisting over parts of
Victoria.

Patchy high level cloud over eastern parts of central Queensland is associated
with a jetstream.

Patchy middle level cloud over parts of South Australia and western Victoria is
due to a surface trough and cold front.

Onshore flow is producing low level cloud over near the Cape York Peninsula and
the northeastern Top End.
