of it. A low pressure system lies in the Tasman Sea.

Cloud over south western Australia is associated with the frontal system. Low to
mid level cloud across the eastern Australia coastline is associated with the
low pressure system. Mid level cloud across northern Australia is associated
with a mid level trough. The remainder of the continent remains relatively cloud
free under the influence of the ridge.
