A broad, slow-moving cloud band extends from the northwest of WA through much of
South Australia into NSW. This cloud is due to an upper level trough.

A cold front is moving across southern Victoria while clearing to the east of
Tasmania. Cold air convective cloud behind the front covers parts of Tasmania.

Patchy low cloud along southern coastal areas of Western Australia lies within a
light onshore airflow.
