A cold front south of WA has a cloud band that extends over the southwest of
that state. Another cold front is developing to its west. A trough across
eastern SA delineates the back edge of a large cloud band. This cloud stretches
far to the south of Tas.

Major cloud development is also associated with a surface trough that lies near
New Caledonia. This trough links to a low pressure system south of Lord Howe
Island.
