Cloud with isolated thunderstorms over central and southeast parts of WA is the
combined result of a surface and an upper level trough. Patchy high cloud can be
seen streaming across SA ahead of the upper level trough.

Cloud associated with a cold front is crossing southwest WA with isolated
thunderstorms visible south of the coast.

Low cloud can be seen near the NSW and southern QLD coasts with onshore winds.

Cloud off the east coast of QLD is due to another surface trough and upper level
jetstream.

A strong high pressure system centred near the western Victoria coastline
extends a ridge over the remainder of the country and is maintaining mostly
clear skies.
