A complex low pressure system sits off the NSW coast with showers and rain
feeding into the southern half of the coast. This is being driven by a mid-level
cold trough centred over central north NSW. Low cloud covers most of the
southeast inland.

A strong cold front has reached western WA. A mass of cloud is associated with
this system and a large pool of cold air follows it.

An area of low and middle level cloud is streaming across Cape York Peninsula.
