A cold front and associated cold air mass is clearing the southeast of the
country. Patchy low cloud can be seen behind the front mainly about coastal
areas of Victoria and aross the ranges in NSW.  

Middle level cloud extends over the Interior and the Pilbara districts of
Western Australia and this is due to an upper level trough. Onshore winds are
resulting in patchy cloud about the North Tropical Coast of Queensland.

Patchy low level cloud is also visible along the coast of South Australia due to
an onshore wind flow.

The rest of the country remains clear under a high pressure ridge.
