A thick band of middle to high level cloud stretches across southern Queensland
and northern New South Wales due to an upper level trough.

Widespread low level cloud can be seen over southern Victoria and Tasmania due
to a moist westerly flow.

A band of middle to high level cloud to the south of the continent is associated
with a cold front approaching Tasmania. 

High level cloud is streaming over southwestern Western Australia.

The remainder of the country is mainly cloud free apart from areas of cloud over
the far Tropical North.
