Low cloud can be seen over southern parts of SA, through Victoria and southern
NSW in the wake of a weakening frontal system that is now progressing through
the Tasman Sea. 

A second front and associated cloud band has moved through Tasmanian and is now
located over southern parts of the Tasman Sea.

Further to the north, a thin cloud band extends from eastern Queensland into the
Tasman Sea and is associated with an upper trough.

Another upper level trough is responsible for the extensive cloud band extending
over the southwest region of WA.
