A field of convective cellular cloud over southeast Australia is associated with
the passage of a cold front. In the west, patchy cloud is observed over
southwest WA ahead of an approaching cold front and thick cloud band.

An upper level cloud band is streaming down from tropical convection over the
Indian Ocean west of Java to central Australia and central Queensland. This
cloud is brought along by the upper level subtropical jet stream. 

The remainder of the continent is mostly cloud free due to a ridge of high
pressure centred over South Australia.
