A low in southwest Western Australia is generating some cloud with embedded
thunderstorms in the area. A trough extending from the low through central
Australia, and Queensland is bringing some mid level cloud to the region. 

A cold front extends from central NSW coast to a low in the Tasman Sea. A
southerly airstream behind the cold front is bringing scattered low cloud along
the coastal areas of Victoria, Tasmania and NSW.

A high in the Great Australian Bight is bringing onshore flow along southern
coastal areas of South Australia generating areas of low cloud.

The rest of the continent is mostly cloud free apart from some patchy cloud
through the tropics.
