The cloud band moving across the Great Australian Bight is due to a cold front
with middle to high level cloud streaming ahead of the front mostly over
Tasmania. Thunderstorms can also be seen south of the Bight along the front. Low
level cloud is evident over the far southwest parts of Western Australia in a
southwesterly wind flow behind the cold front. 

Patchy middle level cloud over the Interior of Western Australia and the
southern parts of the Northern Territory is associated with surface and upper

Moist onshore wind flow is causing areas of low cloud along parts of the east
coast of Australia.

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