A high over the Great Australian Bight is extending an onshore flow over South
Australia, Tasmania and Victoria and is generating low level cloud in the
vicinity with patchy low cloud is also visible along the New South Wales coast.

Middle level cloud associated with the cold front approaching Western Australia
from the southwest is visible over southwest coast of WA.

Remaining parts of Australia are mostly clear due to the high extending a ridge
over central Australia.
