A high pressure system located over southeast Australia extends a ridge across
eastern parts of the country. Clear skies are evident across central and
northern parts of Australia. Southeasterly winds are bringing localised patches
of low cloud along the Queensland coast.

Further south, low cloud is visible over eastern Victoria and southeast New
South Wales due to a westerly airstream. 

Middle to high level cloud extends over southern districts of Western Australia
and SA and is associated with a cold front and upper level trough.
