A series of cold fronts and troughs are moving across the southern part of the
Indian Ocean, over Western Australia and South Australia and through into the
Bight. Patchy middle to high level cloud with embedded thunderstorms extend
throughout the region associated with these systems. High level cloud streaming
out ahead of one system can be seen moving over South Australia, Victoria and
Tasmania. 

Some low level cloud across parts of Victoria and southern New South Wales is
associated with a ridge of high pressure over southeastern Australia. 

Speckled cellular cloud extends across the Tasman Sea which is associated with
the cold air mass following a cold front that has moved through the region in
the last 24hours. 

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