A strong cold front is moving through the Tasman Sea and northern NSW as a cloud
band with embedded thunderstorms. A pool of cold air behind a second cold front
is approaching SA as a broad area of cellular cloud over Bight waters and
adjacent coastal parts. Further west, onshore flow is generating low cloud over
southern WA.

An upper level trough and jet stream is responsible for remaining middle and
high level cloud over northern parts of the continent.

Low cloud also affects parts of Queensland coast from a moist onshore airstream.
