A strong cold front and rapidly intensifying low pressure system are crossing
the Bight generating a large cloud band and thunderstorm activity over eastern
South Australia, Victoria and western part of New South Wales. A field of
convective cellular cloud can be seen in the cold air behind the front.

An upper level cloud band is streaming down from tropical convection over
Indonesia to central Australia. This cloud is brought along by the upper level
subtropical jet stream.

Patches of low cloud can been seen over southern coast of Western Australia and
SA due to an onshore southerly wind flow.
