A cloud band extends over parts of Victoria and Tasmania and is associated with
a weak cold front that is moving through the region.

A cloud band associated with a cold front near southwest Western Australia is
producing showers. The frontal cloud band connects into a larger mass of cloud
in the Great Australian Bight associated with a complex low pressure system.

A high pressure system off the New South Wales coast is keeping eastern and
northern Australia mostly cloud free.
