An extensive band of middle and high level cloud, due to the interaction between
a surface trough and an upper level trough, extends from eastern Queensland and
northeastern NSW to out over the Tasman Sea. Isolated thunderstorms are
occurring between the trough and a cold front crossing eastern Victoria and

Patchy low cloud can be seen over Tasmania and southern Victoria in the cold
unstable airmass west of the front.

Low level cloud over most of Cape York and near the tropical Queensland coast
and along parts of the south coast of SA is due to onshore flows driven by a
ridge of high pressure.

Otherwise skies are mostly clear over northern and western parts of the
continent under the high pressure ridge.
