The cloud band and thunderstorms over the Tasman Sea is due to a cold front.

Another cold front is skirting the south-southwest coast of Western Australia
with high cloud streaming ahead of this front.

A ridge of high pressure is directing a moist southwesterly flow across the
Great Australian Bight resulting in low cloud over the south coast of Australia
from the Nullarbor to Gippsland and western Tasmania.

Patchy middle-level cloud over the interior of Western Australia is due to a,
since weakened, surface trough. An upper-level trough is responsible for the
middle-level cloud streaming across the Northern Territory and central-north

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