A strong cold front and cloud band is moving through the southern districts of
Western Australia. Cold, unstable air behind the front is resulting in scattered
showers and thunderstorms about the far southwest of the state.  Further shower
and thunderstorm activity is visible over the ocean to the southwest.

Moist onshore winds combining with an upper trough are generating showers near
the southeast coast of Queensland and northern and central coasts of New South
Wales. Patchy low level cloud is evident over the tropical coast of QLD and east
of the Divide in NSW, both associated with the onshore flow.

The remainder of the country remains dry and mostly clear.
