Cloud in a cold air field is over southwest WA in the wake of two cold fronts.
Middle level cloud over the Nullabor Plain region is the remnants of the
weakening fronts.

Low cloud over Victoria, southeast SA, southern NSW and Tasmania is in a
southerly airstream behind the strong low pressure system over the Tasman Sea.

Cloud over eastern Queensland is associated with a surface trough off the coast
of that state.
