A broad cloud band extends from the northwest of WA through northern parts of
South Australia into NSW. This cloud is due to an upper trough.

A weakening frontal system is slipping to the southeast of Tasmania but patchy
low cloud remains over parts of the state as well as over southwest Victoria. A
stronger cold front is approaching Tasmania from the west and is also bringing
areas of low cloud to the far southwest of WA.

Patchy low cloud along parts of the Queensland east coast is due to a moist
onshore airflow.
