A high pressure system located over New South Wales extends a ridge across
central Australia. Clear skies are evident across central and northern areas of
the country.

Southeasterly winds are bringing localised patches of low cloud onto the
Queensland coast. 
Patches of low level cloud are visible over Victoria and the west coast of
Tasmania in the westerly airstream. 
An area of patchy middle level cloud associated with a low pressure trough
extends from central WA to South Australia, southwestern NSW, and northwestern
Victoria.

A strong cold front is affecting southern Western Australia. The particularly
cold air mass behind this front can be identified by the cellular cloud.
