A cold front is crossing the south east of the continent with the main cloud
band currently over Victoria and Tasmania. To the west of the cold front a large
mass of cold air has produced a large and vigorous field of speckled convective
cloud with isolated thunderstorms around the the Victorian and South Australian
coastlines. This speckled cloud extends throughout the Bight and south into the
Southern Ocean.

The rest of the country is mostly clear, with only isolated cumulus clouds
observable through parts of the Northern Territory and Queensland.
