Low cloud can be seen in the wake of a weakening frontal system progressing
through the Tasman Sea. This cloud covers areas of SA, VIC, TAS and southern
NSW. A second front and associated cloud band can be seen approaching the
southwest of TAS.

Further to the north, a cloud band extends from the northwest of Queensland,
through the southeast of the state and into the Tasman. This is associated with
an upper trough.

Patchy low cloud remains about southern coastal areas of Western Australia while
another upper trough is responsible for the extensive cloud band extending into
the southwest of the state.
