Low cloud along the east coast of Victoria, New South Wales and southern
Queensland is due to cold airmass associated with a complex low pressure system
near New Zealand. Thunderstorms can be seen over the northern Tasman Sea.

Cloud with embedded thunderstorms over the Eyre Peninsula (SA) is due to a cold
front and low pressure system. Low cloud is affecting southern Western
Australia, behind the cold front. Middle level cloud streaming across South
Australia, and western Victoria and New South Wales, is associated with an upper
level trough.

High level jetstream cloud covers northeastern SA and southwestern Queensland.
Patchy low cloud covers the Indian Ocean under a high pressure ridge, while
mid-level cloud further south lies along another cold front.

The remainder of the country is mostly clear under the influence of a high
pressure ridge.
