Cloud associated with seasonal shower and thunderstorm activity is evident over
the north of the country.

A cloud band stretches from the Kimberley WA to the Great Australian Bight,
wrapping around a low pressure system over the Nullabor. This band extends to
south of Tasmania, associated with a cold front.

Areas of low cloud along the east coast and adjacent inland are from a moist
onshore airstream.
