A broad, slow-moving cloud band extends from the northwest of WA through most of
South Australia into NSW. This cloud is due to an upper level trough.

A cold front is clearing to the east of Victoria. Cold air convective cloud
behind the front covers western and southern parts of Tasmania.

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