A northwest cloud band extends from the Kimberley across central Australia to
eastern parts of South Australia and western Victoria. High cloud is also
streaming across New South Wales.

Areas of low cloud wrapping around a low south of the Bight cover large parts of
Southern WA. Patchy low cloud also covers parts of the tropical east coast of
Queensland within a moist southeasterly flow.
