Middle and high level cloud is streaming across central parts of Western
Australia and through into the Bight with isolated thunderstorms ahead of the
system. The cloud is associated with a cold front that is moving through central
WA and a low pressure trough to the east. In the cold airmass behind the front,
speckled cloud can be seen moving through the South West Land Division and
southern parts of the WA coast.

A low pressure trough located to the north of the NT is generating large areas
of active thunderstorms and convective cloud. Further thunderstorms can be seen
throughout central Queensland which are associated with a nearby low pressure
system. On the east coast, extensive smoke areas remain for central and northern
areas of NSW and southeast Queensland due to ongoing bushfires. 

Further south, high cloud ahead of the cold front is drifting over Tasmania and
southwest parts of Victoria.
