A mid level cloud band stretching from the New South Wales coast across the
Tasman Sea is associated with a cold front.

Convective cloud can be seen over eastern South Australia and central Northern

Onshore southeasterly winds continue to bring areas of low cloud to the
Peninsula and North Tropical Coast districts of Queensland. Patches of low level
cloud is also visible along the southern coast of Western Australia due to a
high pressure system over the Great Australian Bight directing an onshore flow.

The remainder of the country is mostly clear.
