The cloud band with embedded thunderstorms extending across the northern parts
of the continent is due to surface and upper level troughs. 

Low cloud is visible along the coastal areas in the southeast parts of the
country as a result of onshore wind flow. 

A high pressure ridge is keeping the remainder of the continent cloud free.
