A surface trough and associated upper level trough are generating an extensive
cloud band that covers most of the eastern seaboard and extends out over the
Tasman Sea towards New Zealand as well as over parts of the Coral Sea.

A weakening low pressure system near the west coast of South Australia is
generating areas of cloud over most of the state as well as over southern
coastal areas of Western Australia. Cloud associated with a strong cold front
lies well to the west of WA.

Patchy low cloud associated with a low pressure trough lies over parts of
Tasmania and southern Victoria.
