Issued at 12:01 pm EST Sunday on 21 September 2014

Some low cloud remains over western Tasmania and southern Victoria ahead of the centre of the high pressure system.

High cloud is streaming southeastward from the Papua New Guinea region due to an upper trough and a strong jet stream north of New Zealand.

Thunderstorm development is evident over southeast Queensland.

A strong cold front has reached Western Australia. A cold air mass with showers and thunderstorms is visible behind the front.
