A weakening low pressure trough along the Victorian coast is bringing areas of
cloud across the state and through Bass Strait. This trough extends through
southeast NSW and connects to a cold front moving up the central NSW coast.
Patchy low cloud over Tasmania lies within the southeasterly airflow to the
south of the trough.

Moist onshore winds are resulting in areas of low cloud about southern parts of
South Australia, while a cold front is moving across the far southwest of
Western Australia. Low cloud in advance of this system covers parts of the
Southwest Land Division.

Further north, southeasterly trade winds are generating areas of low cloud off
the east Queensland coast. Areas of low and middle level cloud are also evident
about parts of the Kimberley coast and western Gulf of Carpentaria.

The remainder of Australia is mostly clear due to a broad ridge of high pressure
through the interior of the country.
