A cold front and associated cloud band with embedded thunderstorms is moving
through the Tasman Sea and stretches southward to a low located east of
Tasmania. A pool of cold air with speckled convective cloud is moving over
southeastern Australia in the southerly flow behind the front.

A region of active thunderstorms are visible in eastern WA, near the NT border
which are associated with a nearby trough. Further south, patchy areas of low
cloud over southern parts of SA are trapped under a temperature inversion caused
by a dominant high pressure ridge.

A developing low pressure system and trough is moving north across Bight waters
towards the Eyre Peninsula in SA.

The remainder of the continent is mostly cloud free, while a strong cold front
can be seen well west of Australia approaching the Great Australian Bight.
