A large mass of cloud stretches from the Indian Ocean over central Western
Australia, South Australia and New South Wales to southern New Zealand. This
cloud is associated with a cold front/low complex and a broad upper level
trough.

Low cloud over the Bight and parts of southern WA is from an onshore airstream
generated by the high pressure system.

Some low cloud remains over southeast Queensland in a moist easterly airstream.
