A strong cold front with an extensive cloud band is moving through the southern
districts of Western Australia and extending through into the Southern Ocean.
Cold, unstable air behind the front is resulting in speckled convective cloud
and thunderstorms about the far southwest of the state and out over the ocean.
Further east, high cloud can be seen pushing over Tasmania ahead of the frontal

Moist onshore winds due to a strong high pressure system in the Tasman Sea are
combining with an upper level trough and generating areas of low level cloud
along southeast QLD. Further patchy low cloud is also evident along the NSW
coast associated with the onshore flow.

The remainder of the country remains dry and mostly clear.
