A cool west to southwest airstream is over the southeast of the country. A cloud
band associated with a cold front extends from eastern Victoria to the Tasman
Sea.  Areas of low cloud extend over eastern NSW, southeast SA and most of
Victoria and Tasmania.

A cloud band associated with a strong cold front is approaching southern WA from
the Indian Ocean.

The rest of the country remains generally cloud-free under the influence of a
large high pressure system.
