Issued at 5:00 am EST Tuesday on 29 July 2014

The Sub-Tropical Ridge, or the belt linking the high pressure systems, stretches across the middle of the continent. Embedded cold fronts with associated cloud are south of this in the vigorous westerly airstream over the Southern Ocean.

A line of jetstream cloud stretches from southern South Australia and southern New South Wales to the Tasman Sea.

Some patchy middle level cloud is visible about the northern tropics.
