Issued at 5:52 pm EST Monday on 01 September 2014

The cloud band over the southeast of the country is associated with a major cold front. Cold-air cloud behind this front can be seen south of Adelaide.

Cloud to the west of Western Australia is due to a strong jet stream in the upper atmosphere.

The northern half of the country is mostly clear.
