Cloud with isolated embedded thunderstorms over the southeast parts of the
country is due to a weakening cold front and low pressure system. Low cloud
behind the cold front is affecting the southern coastal areas of Western
Australia and South Australia. Middle and high level cloud streaming across the
eastern parts of Victoria and New South Wales, and across Bass Strait is
associated with an upper trough.

Another cold front can be seen to the south of Western Australia, associated
with mainly middle level cloud. A mid-level trough and jetstream are combining
to cause the cloud approaching the northwest coast.

Low cloud is visible on and near the Queensland and northern NSW coast due to
onshore trade wind flow around a high centred just off Cape Byron (NSW).

The remainder of the country is mostly clear under the influence of a high
pressure ridge.
