A trough and a weakening cold front are moving across the Tasman Sea, triggering
active thunderstorm activity near Lord Howe Island.

Another cloud band associated with a strong cold front is moving over Western
Australia and the Bight. The patchy cloud west of this system indicates a large
pool of cold, unstable air with showers and isolated thunderstorms.

High-level cloud is streaming along the jetstream that extends from northwest WA
down to the southeastern states.

Onshore winds are bringing low cloud to parts of Cape York Peninsula and the
eastern Top End. A large high pressure system over the eastern part of the
country is responsible for keeping the rest of the country mainly cloud free.
