A strong, fast moving cold front is moving through the Tasman Sea with a large
field of cold air behind the front evident by the "speckled" cellular cloud west
of front. 

An extensive cloud band with embedded showers and thunderstorms extends over the
Eastern Great Australian Bight, SA and VIC, is associated with a second fast
moving cold front.

A band of middle level cloud streaming across the centre of the continent is
associated with a jet stream in the upper levels of the atmosphere.
