The cloud band and thunderstorms over the Tasman Sea is due to a cold front.

Another cold front is approaching southeastern Australia with high cloud
streaming ahead of this system.

An upper-level trough is responsible for the middle-level cloud streaming across
the Northern Territory and also much of Queensland.

The rest of the continent is mostly clear due a ridge of high pressure.
