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 extends from eastern New South Wales out over the Tasman sea. Cold
air convective cloud behind the front covers western and southern parts of
Tasmania and southern Victoria. Low level convective cloud also covers large
parts of southern WA due to the moist southerly air flow.

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