An extensive band of middle and high level cloud, due to the interaction between
a surface trough and an upper level trough, extends from the Interior of WA over
central Australia, South Australia and inland parts of Queensland, New South
Wales and Victoria.

A trough is moving across the Tasman Sea with thunderstorms near the trough.
Speckled cloud can be seen in the unstable cold air behind the trough.

Low level cloud is evident near tropical Queensland, Tasmania and along the
south coast of the continent and is due to onshore flows driven by a firm ridge
of high pressure. 

Skies are mostly clear over the remainder of country under the high pressure
ridge.
