A broad, slow moving cloud band extends from the central interior of Western
Australia through northern parts of South Australia and across New South Wales.
This cloud is due to an upper level trough.

An area of convective cloud over the north coast of the Top End is associated
with a weak trough and an easterly surge over the Arafura Sea. An area of high
cloud streams from this mass across the Northern Territory and into western
Queensland.

A cold front to the south of Tasmania is moving northeast and low cloud
associated with this system covers Tasmania. 

Patchy low level cloud lies over parts of the SA coast and also about the
tropical Queensland coast due to a moist onshore airstream.
