A cloud band with embedded thunderstorms has moved east into the Tasman Sea.
Speckled cold air cloud behind this front can be seen over Victoria, Tasmania
and the southern parts of New South Wales.

A thin cloud band associated with a cold front is approaching southwest Western
Australia. A larger mass of cloud associated with this front is visible in the
Southern Ocean.

A cloud band producing rain over coastal North Queensland has been formed by
moist tropical air being moved southwards by the jet stream.

A high pressure system over northern South Australia is keeping the remaining
areas of Australia cloud free.
