A series of troughs and a widespread cold airmass extends from the Great
Australian Bight through southeast Australia into the Tasman Sea. Extensive low
level cloud and speckled cloud indicating active showers and thunderstorms
stretch across the region.

A cold front southwest of WA can be seen with a cloud band wrapping into a low
pressure system associated with the system.

The remainder of the country is mostly clear under the influence of a high
pressure ridge.
