A surface low and weakening trough are cobining with an upper trough to create
the mid-level cloud reaching from southern Queensland to northern Tasmania.
Isolated thunderstorms are occurring in the cloudband off the NSW coast, with
shower activity onshore along the Macquarie and Hunter coasts. Low cloud behind
the cold front is affecting the southern South Australia. 

Another cold front can be seen to the south of Western Australia, associated
with mainly middle level cloud. Onshore flow ahead of the front is bringing low
cloud to the southwest of Western Australia. A mid-level trough and jetstream
are combining to cause the cloud streaming into the Gascoyne and Pilbara regions
of WA.

Low cloud is visible on and near the Queensland and northern NSW coast due to
onshore trade wind flow around a high centred in the northern Tasman Sea.

The remainder of the country is mostly clear under the influence of a high
pressure ridge.
