The cloud band over the southeast of the country is associated with an active cold front and surface trough. Cold-air cloud behind this front can be seen over Victoria and Tasmania.
Cloud over the southwest of Western Australia is due to a combination of a low pressure trough over the Indian Ocean and an upper level jet stream.
The northern half of the country is mostly clear due to a ridge of high pressure extending northwards from the Bight.
