A band of patchy cloud with a few embedded thunderstorms extends from the WA/NT
border region to western parts of South Australia and is associated with a
slow-moving surface trough. Patchy low cloud also remains about southwestern
parts of WA in the wake of a cold front which is now slipping to the south of
the Bight. Another cold front is approaching WA from the southwest.

Low cloud over parts of Tasmania and southern Victoria lies within a moist
southerly airstream. A deep low pressure system can be seen over the Tasman Sea
well to the east of both states. The cloud band to the northeast of this low is
due to a developing trough.
