A cold front is moving over southern parts of South Australia. A pool of cold,
unstable air with isolated thunderstorms is evident behind the front as depicted
by the speckled cloud over waters adjacent to Western Australia's southern
coast. 

Middle and high level cloud with isolated embedded thunderstorms extends through
South Australia and well south into the Bight and Southern Ocean where a deep
low pressure system is evident in the cloud structure. High cloud extends from
central parts of the contintent into western Victoria.

A line of thunderstorms has developed offshore of the Queensland coast, and
isolated storms have developed over the Kimberley coast in Western Australia.
