Areas of mostly low cloud can be seen off the NSW coast embedded within a
southerly airstream well to the west of a deep low near New Zealand, with low
level cloud also persisting over parts of Victoria.

High level cloud extends  across central Queensland over the Tasman Sea. This
cloud is associated with an upper level disturbance and a jetstream.

Patchy middle level cloud over parts of South Australia and western Victoria is
due to a surface trough. Further south a cold front and its associated cloud
band is moving to the south of the Great Australian Bight, while another cold
front is crossing the southwest of WA.
