A broad, slow moving cloud band extends from the Pilbara region of WA through
northern parts of South Australia and NSW. This cloud is due to an upper level
trough.

A cold front has moved off the NSW coast into the Tasman sea. Another cold front
is moving towards Tasmania. Cloud associated with this front is moving on to
Tasmania. Low level cloud also covers parts of south coast of Australia due to a
moist onshore airstream.

Convective cloud band over the north coast of the Top End is associated with a
weak trough and an easterly surge over the Arafura Sea.
