A patchy middle to high level cloud band extends from the southern interior of
Western Australia through South Australia to western Victoria. This is generated
by an upper level disturbance.

Low level cloud can be observed in the cool onshore flow west of the cold front
over Tasmania and coastal NSW.

A trough of low pressure moving up the NSW coast has generated thunderstorms
over the Tablelands.

Thunderstorms are observed within middle level cloud over the Kimberley
district, the Top End and northern Queensland. Thunderstorms have also developed
to the south over the NT. Patchy high level cloud is visible off the Queensland
east coast.

The remainder of the continent is mostly cloud-free due to high pressure ridges.
