A broad cloud band extends from the northwest of WA through large parts of South
Australia and southern NT, into NSW. This cloud is due to a surface and upper
level trough.

Patchy low cloud remains over parts of Tasmania and southern Victoria behind a
weakened frontal system. A stronger cold front is approaching Tasmania from the
west and is also bringing areas of 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.
