Cloud over southern Western Australia is streaming from the northwest ahead of a
low pressure system.

A cold front is moving across Victoria with associated cloud band located mainly
over the Tasman Sea. Low cloud can be seen over eastern Victoria along the
front.

Patchy low cloud over the Queensland east coast is due to the southeast trade
wind flow.

The remainder of the country is mostly clear due to a ridge of high pressure.
