6am Weather Chart

A trough extends north into QLD from a low over VIC. A weak high in the Tasman
Sea extends a ridge along the Queensland coast while another high in the Indian
Ocean extends a ridge over south WA and SA. A number of weak heat lows are
located throughout the Pilbara, Kimberley and northern NT. 

9am Satellite Picture

Patchy cloud over VIC, TAS and eastern NSW is associated with the trough and
low. Mid level cloud over WA is associated with the presence of the heat low
over the Pilbara. The rest of the continent remains relatively cloud free under
the influence of the high pressure ridges.
