The middle to upper level cloud band moving across southeast Australia is
associated with a middle level disturbance.

The subtropical jet stream is directing high level cloud over southwest WA off
of the Indian Ocean.

In the east, a high pressure system over New South Wales is directing a moist
onshore airflow over the northeast coast of Australia, producing areas of patchy
low cloud.

The rest of the country is mostly clear due to a ridge of high pressure system.
