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 WA to southern
Queensland and covers most of South Australia, New South Wales and northern
Victoria. Isolated thunderstorms are embedded in this cloud near the SA/Northern
Territory border.

A trough is moving across the northern Tasman Sea with thunderstorms along it.
Speckled cloud can be seen in the unstable cold air behind the trough.

Low level cloud is evident near tropical Queensland, Tasmania and along the
south coast of the continent and is due to onshore flows driven by a firm ridge
of high pressure. A band of cloud crossing the Bight indicates a cold front.

Skies are mostly clear over the remainder of country under the high pressure
