A cold front is crossing the Tasman Sea and has an associated band of
thunderstorms and mid-upper level cloud with a broad area of cool-air
thunderstorm activity to the west of the front. High cloud extends over Tasmania
thanks to an upper level jet stream flowing north. Some patchy low cloud
persists over southern parts of WA.

The rest of the country is mostly clear, save for some low-middle level cloud
over the Top End of the NT due to easterly winds carrying moisture from the Gulf
of Carpentaria.
