An extensive band of middle and high level cloud, due to the interaction between
a surface trough and an upper level trough, extends from the Interior of WA
through central Australia. Some middle level cloud is along the southern coast
of WA ahead of a pre-frontal trough.

Patchy high level cloud is streaming along the jet stream from the Indian Ocean,
through northern WA to southern NT.

A trough is moving across the Tasman Sea with thunderstorms near the trough.
Speckled cloud can be seen in the unstable cold air behind the trough.

Low level cloud is evident near tropical Queensland, Tasmania and along the
south coast of the continent is due to onshore flows driven by a firm ridge of
high pressure. 

Skies are mostly clear over the remainder of country under the high pressure
ridge.
