A high over southeastern Australia is extending an onshore flow over Tasmania,
Victoria and is generating low level cloud in the vicinity with patchy low cloud
also visible along the New South Wales coast and southeast Queensland coast.

A cold front has moved off the coast of Tasmania. Associated middle level cloud
is visible over Tasman sea.

A middle level cloud band associated with an upper trough is moving over
southwest Western Australia.

Remaining parts of the country are mostly clear due to the high extending a
ridge over central Australia.
