An extensive band of middle and high level cloud, due to the interaction between
a surface trough and an upper level trough, extends from eastern WA to southern
Queensland and covers most of South Australia, New South Wales and Victoria.

A trough with isolated thunderstorms lies northwest of New Zealand. 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. A band of cloud crossing the Bight indicates a cold front.
More cold, unstable air lies west of this front, indicated by the area of patchy

Skies are mostly clear over the northern half of the continent under the high
pressure ridge.
