Areas of mostly low cloud can be seen just off the NSW coast embedded within a
southerly airstream well to the west of a deep low near New Zealand.

High level cloud extends from central Australia to cover much of New South Wales
and southern Queensland. This cloud is associated with an upper level
disturbance. Patchy middle level cloud over South Australia is due to a surface
trough.

A cold front and its associated cloud band is moving along the southern coast of
WA while another approaches from the west.
