A cloud band associated associated with a strong cold front stretches from the
east coast of Queensland over the Coral and Tasman Seas then curving to a low
west of Tasmania. A complex low pressure system is located over central
Victoria. The low and front are generating a large cloud mass over most of New
South Wales, Victoria, Tasmania, and southeast South Australia. A field of
convective cellular cloud can be seen in the cold air behind the front over
southern South Australia.

A patchy cloud band can be seen near a surface trough extending from the Top End
to northern Queensland. Cloud over northwest coastal areas of Western Australia
is extending from convective activity over the Indian Ocean. Cloud associated
with a weak cold front is moving over the far southwest of Western Australia.

The remainder of Western Australia and Central Australia is mostly clear due to
a ridge of high pressure extending from the Indian Ocean.
