Cloud over southeast Australia is associated with a cold front that is crossing
the region. Cold unstable air following the front appears as speckled cloud
moving over SA, Tasmania and western Victoria.

A stronger fast-moving cold front lies well south of WA. This front will develop
and move quickly towards the southeast of the continent over the next 24 hours.

A trough over the Indian Ocean is producing some middle level cloud over central
west WA, whilst low cloud lies along the south coast.

Low cloud also affects central eastern parts of Queensland and there is a line
of high cloud over Cape York.
