Showers and thunderstorms extend over northern Australia, most parts of
Queensland and New South Wales. This is due to humid, northeast to northwesterly
airstream and associated low pressure trough.

Further south, a strong cold front is moving across the Tasman Sea. Speckled
clouds in a cold air mass can be seen following the cold front mainly over the
Bight and Bass Straight.

Patches of low cloud is evident along the southeast coast of Australia due to a
southwesterly onshore flow.

A high pressure ridge lies over southern districts of Western Australia. Another
high pressure ridge across the Tasman Sea and Coral Sea is directing a north to
northeast airstream over eastern Australia.
