A cold front is crossing southwest parts of Western Australia with low and
middle level cloud affecting the area. Middle and high level cloud extends along
the front through the Southern Ocean and to western Tasmania. High cloud is
drifting past Tasmania ahead of the front. Extensive cold air convective cloud
with isolated thunderstorms follows the front over the Southern Ocean.

Patchy low cloud is over eastern Victoria and western New South Wales.

Some middle level cloud extends over Queensland north of Townsville. Middle
level cloud also extends from between Broome and Port Hedland into the Interior
of WA.

The remainder of the continent is mainly cloud free under the influence of a
high pressure ridge extending across central Australia.
