Cloud over the southeast is associated with a cold front that is crossing the
region. A stronger fast-moving cold front lies well south of WA. This front will
develop and move quickly towards the southeast of the continent over the next 24

A trough over the Indian Ocean is producing some middle level cloud over
centralwest WA, whilst low cloud lies along the south coast.

Low cloud also affects central eastern parts of Queensland and there is a line
of high cloud over Cape York.
