A cold front extends from the far northeast of NSW across the Tasman Sea to the
south island of New Zealand. An extensive area of mid level cloud is streaming
ahead of this system with embedded thunderstorm activity. A pre-frontal trough
is aligned from western Queensland to the northeast of NSW which has triggered
isolated showers mainly over the northeast of NSW. Further south, a westerly
airstream and associated trough is resulting in areas of low cloud over the
agricultural areas of South Australia, southern Victoria and Tasmania. 

In the west, a band of mid level cloud with embedded thunderstorms extends over
the South West Land Division. This is associated with a broad low complex with
the main centre near Perth.

Mostly clear through the interior and across the north of the country.
