Speckled cold air cloud can be seen over the Tasman Sea.

A thin cloud band associated with a cold front is approaching southwest South
Australia. A larger mass of cloud associated with this front is visible in the
Great Australian Bight.

A cloud band producing rain over coastal Queensland has been formed by moist
tropical air being moved southwards by the jet stream.

A high pressure system over south eastern Australia is keeping the remaining
areas of Australia cloud free.
