Tropical Cyclone "Herman" is located in the Indian Ocean, south of Christmas

A significant region of convective and high cloud is present to the east of a
trough that extends from the Pilbara coast, through central Western Australia
and into a low off the Geraldton coast. This band of cloud covers most of
central and southern Western Australia and extends into South Australia, through
the Northern Territory and into central Queensland.

A low pressure system in the Tasman Sea is producing thick cloud that covers
much of Tasmania and eastern Victoria. 

A ridge in the Bight is driving moist onshore flow, which is producing areas of
low cloud through Victoria, western Tasmania, coastal South Australia and New
South Wales.  

The rest of the country is mostly cloud free.
