Onshore winds are producing areas of low cloud from southeast Queensland to
eastern Victoria. Isolated thunderstorms are occurring over the southeast of
Queensland with patchy cloud visible further over central and tropical
Queensland coast due to a trough of low pressure.

A cloud band associated with a weakening cold front and a trough is moving over
Victoria and Tasmania. The trough extends over South Australia into southern
Western Australia, with an associated middle 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.
