Areas of low cloud are drifting over Tasmania, Victoria, New South Wales, South
Australia and southeastern parts of Western Australia in a moist onshore flow.

Patchy high and middle level cloud is streaming from a low pressure system over
the Indian Ocean across northwestern WA and the country's northern interior.
Some high level cloud is also visible over the Top End of the Northern
Territory.

A high pressure ridge is keeping other parts of the country mostly cloud free.
