Convective cloud is over the west of WA in the wake of two cold fronts. Middle
level cloud over the WA/SA border region and northern SA is the remnants of the
weakening front together with a surface trough.

Low cloud over the southeast of the continent is in a southerly airstream behind
the strong low pressure system now over the Tasman Sea.

Cloud over eastern Queensland is associated with a surface trough off the coast
of that state.
