An extensive cloud band extends over the Coral Sea towards the North Island of
New Zealand and is due to a surface trough and associated upper level trough.

Patchy middle-level cloud near southeast Queensland is caused by an upper level
disturbance.

An unstable west/southwesterly flow is bringing patchy low cloud to parts of
Tasmania, southern Victoria and South Australia.

A strong cold front and its associated cloud band are moving through the
southwest of Western Australia and high-level cloud streams ahead of this system
to extend across the south of Western Australia.
