A strong cold front is impacting southwest Western Australia. The front extends
further south connecting with a deep low over the Southern Ocean. High level
cloud visible across the Bight is streaming ahead of the main frontal band.

Further east, a cold front and associated low complex is moving over the Tasman
Sea. Westerly winds behind the front are resulting in areas of low cloud over
Tasmania and Victoria. An upper trough is producing patchy middle and high level
cloud from the Kimberley to central Australia.

Cloud over northern and central Queensland and the Coral Sea is now decreasing.
