A strong cold front with a middle level cloud band is moving across southern New
South Wales, Victoria and Tasmania. A large pool of cold and unstable air is in
its wake.

Patchy low cloud can also be seen over New South Wales, the south coast of WA
and parts of tropical Australia.

The rest of the country remains mainly cloud free due to a ridge of high
pressure.
