Cloud associated with seasonal shower and thunderstorm activity is evident over
the north of the country. 

A cloud band with embedded thunderstorms can be seen extending into the Southern
Ocean as a broad area of low pressure migrates eastwards with the progression of
a cold front, to the south of the continent.

Areas of low cloud along the east coast and adjacent inland are the reult of an
onshore airstream.
