The cloud band stretching from the Coral Sea across the Tasman Sea is associated
with the passage of a significant cold front wrapping around a complex low
pressure system. Extensive areas of cloud can be seen near the low system
centred off the west coast of Tasmania.

Tropical moisture from the convective activity over the Indian Ocean has formed
a cloud band over northwest of Australia.

A cold front is tracking across the Southern Ocean while another frontal cloud
band is approaching the southwest of WA.

The remainder of the continent is mostly clear due to a ridge of high pressure.
