A broad mass of patchy cloud across the Northern Territory and Queensland is due to an upper level disturbance and links to a frontal cloud band over the Tasman Sea. A small low is moving up the east coast of Tasmania bringing patchy low and middle level cloud to much of the state. Patchy cloud can also be seen over parts of southeastern Australia within a broad southerly airflow to the east of a ridge.
