Tropical moisture is being dragged southeastwards from a low pressure system
near Christmas Island. The resulting cloud band stretches across the centre of
the continent.

A weakening cold front with its associated cloud can be seen over Victoria and
New South Wales.

Low cloud is over the southern WA and SA coasts in the wake of the front.
