Ex-Tropical Cyclone "Frances" is located off the Kimberley coast of Western
Australia and features frequent thunderstorm activity. High level cloud is
streaming off this system across northern WA into central parts of the country.
Tropical Cyclone "Greg", Category 1, is west of Christmas Island and
intensifying.

A southeasterly airflow is maintaining low level cloud patches along the New
South Wales and Queensland coasts. Southerly flow is also causing low cloud over
much of Victoria and southeast South Australia. Patchy low level cloud is seen
covering large parts of Tasmania in a moderate northwesterly flow. Much of the
continent is cloud free due to this ridge of high pressure.

Patchy middle level cloud covers parts of eastern SA, and western Victoria and
NSW from an upper level trough.

A cloud band associated with a cold front is moving across the Great Australian
Bight towards the southeastern states.
