Areas of mostly low cloud can be seen just off the NSW coast embedded within a
southerly airstream well to the west of a deep low near New Zealand.

High and middle level cloud extends from northern WA to cover much of South
Australia and parts of western NSW. This cloud is associated with a surface
trough and upper level disturbance.

A cold front and its associated cloud band is moving across the far southwest
coast of WA while another approaches from the west.
