A large cloud band extends southeastwards from a low pressure system south of
Christmas Island. This band is now reaching western NSW.

A series of cold fronts are affecting the south of the continent with cold air
in their wake. The cold air fields are the areas of "speckled" cloud.

Patchy low cloud is over the northern tropical coast of Queensland in a moist
onshore airstream.
