Onshore winds are producing areas of low cloud from southeast Queensland to
eastern Victoria. Isolated thunderstorms are occurring over the southeast
interior of Queensland and about the NSW ranges. Patchy cloud is visible further
north on the central and tropical Queensland coast.

Further west, a cold front is moving through the Bight with an associated
mid-level cloud band extending inland through Western Australia. Southerly winds
are bringing areas of low cloud to the southwest coast.

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