In the south, a low pressure system with an associated cold front is passing
over Western Victoria and moving towards Tasmania. There is speckled cloud to
the west of this system, indicating the cooler air in the wake of the system.

A low pressure trough extends across northern Australia producing showers and
storms over the Kimberley region of WA, northeastern parts of the NT and
northern QLD. Some mid level cloud produced by these storms sweeps south
extending across central and southern Queensland.

A high to the west of Western Australia is pushing across the Indian Ocean,
trapping low cloud near coastal parts of the WA south coast and SA and VIC's
coastal regions.
