Low cloud over the eastern parts of New South Wales and Victoria and the
southeast parts of Queensland, is due to a low pressure system located over the
Tasman Sea. Thunderstorms can be seen around the low pressure system, mainly
over the Tasman Sea.

A cold front with an associated cloud band and embedded thunderstorms, is
approaching the southwest parts of Western Australia.

Another cloud band associated with another cold front is moving towards Tasmania
from the west. 

A third weakening cold front is passing to the south of Tasmania with low cloud
affecting mostly the western parts of Tasmania.
