Low level cloud covers the southeast of the continent west of the Dividing Range
in NSW. This is due to a series of cold fronts that have brought up
Antarctic-source air over recent days. Middle and high level cloud over Tas is
from the fast-moving cold front.

A cloud band over the Pilbara region WA is now extending towards Central
Australia and western SA. This is caused by an upper air disturbance. A weak
"cut-off" low and surface trough can be seen near the southwest of that state.

Patchy low cloud is over eastern Qld but the north of the continent is
relatively cloud free.
