A cold front with an extensive cloud band continues its progress across
southeastern Australia, with low level convective cloud in the cold airmass
behind it. A subsequent cold front is developing in the Great Australian Bight.

A thin band of upper cloud fed by tropical moisture from the Indian Ocean lies
over the Gascoyne Region of WA. The remainder of the country remains relatively
clear under the influence of a high pressure ridge.
