A cold front is progressing through southern Western Australia with showers in
its wake over southern coastal districts. Middle level cloud is streaming ahead
of the front with isolated embbeded thunderstorms mainly over the Bight. Another
frontal system is visible to the west of Tasmania connecting with a low complex
further south. A weakening trough extends north of this front near the VIC-SA
border with isolated thunderstorms while extensive middle and high level cloud
covers Tasmania.

Thunderstorm activity is evident near the southeast Queensland coast with the
cells tracking further towards the east. The remainder of Australia is mostly
clear apart from patchy high cloud over the southeast.
