Low level cloud covers much of the south of the continent due to a series of
cold fronts, now weakening, that have brought up Antarctic-source air over
recent days.

A cloud band has developed over the Pilbara region of WA. This is caused by an
upper air disturbance. A "cut-off" low and cold front can be seen near the
southwest of that state.

The north of the continent is mostly cloud free.
