Cloud over Victoria, Bass Strait, Tasmania and the southeast parts of South
Australia is due to a series of surface troughs ahead of a weakening cold front.
Westerly winds behind the front are resulting in patchy areas of low cloud about
the southern Western Australia coast.

Further north, onshore winds are causing low cloud along the east Queensland

The remainder of Australia is relatively clear due to a high pressure system
centred over the central parts of New South Wales.
