An extensive band of middle and high level cloud, due to the interaction between
a surface trough and an upper level trough, extends from southern Queensland and
northern NSW to out over the Tasman Sea.

Low level cloud is evident near the tropical Queensland coast and along parts of
the south coast of WA and SA and is due to onshore flows driven by a ridge of
high pressure.

A cold front and associated middle level cloudband is approaching Tasmania and
southern Victoria.

Some thin high level cloud is streaming over northern parts of the continent.
Otherwise skies are mostly clear over northern and western parts of the
continent under the high pressure ridge.
