A cloud band extends across the Pilbara towards the interior of the continent,
connecting with a surface trough to the northwest in the Indian Ocean.

A series of cold fronts are traversing the Southern Ocean, with one line of
cloud approaching the southeast of the continent, and another propagating
northeastwards towards the southwest of Western Australia.

A surface trough and upper-level disturbance are responsible for an area of
cloud across parts of New South Wales.

A low in the southern Coral Sea is leading to an arc of convective cloud that is
progressing southwards.

The remainder of the continent is mostly cloud-free.
