A trough and associated cloud band has moved onto Tasmania from the Great
Australian Bight. This trough extends further into South Australia and eastern
parts of Western Australia where patches of low cloud is being generated near
the trough.

A large high pressure system over the eastern part of the country is responsible
for keeping the rest of the continent mainly cloud free, with just some patchy
high cloud streaming down over northern Australia.
