Tropical moisture is being dragged southeastwards from a low pressure system
near Christmas Island. The resulting cloud band stretches across the centre of
the continent.

A cold front with its associated cloud can be seen over Victoria and Tasmania.

Low cloud is over the southern WA and SA coasts in the wake of the front.
