A strong cold front is crossing the south of the continent with an associated
band of rain. High level cloud can be seen streaming down over Tasmania, the
Southern Ocean and the Tasman Sea. The moisture source for the cloud band is
over the Indian Ocean west of about Geraldton, WA.

Cloud over the Coral Sea is due to an upper level trough to the west.
