A broad band of mostly middle-level cloud extends from the northwest of WA
through central Australia into northern NSW. This cloud is due to an upper
trough.

A weakening cold front is moving across Tasmania and is directing low cloud over
southwestern Victoria and southeastern South Australia. A stronger cold front is
moving over waters south of the Bight and is also bringing low cloud to the far
southwest of WA.

Patchy low cloud along parts of the Queensland east coast is due to a moist
onshore airflow.
