Due to a weather change in Bali, high temperature and rain.
This is from Rio Helmi who explains it perfectly. No warnings have changed for now.
This afternoon Gunung Agung has undergone a phreatic eruption (or sometimes known as a cold eruption) for the first time. It is caused by water entering deep into the vents/cracks and coming into contact with extreme heat and gases resulting in violent explosive reaction. The cloud you see contains sulfur dioxide etc. It is not yet a magmatic eruption. Phreatic eruptions v have only been known to cause magmatic eruptions in isolated cases, eg in Japan. No panic needed but common sense.
