A surface trough and associated cloud band with embedded thunderstorms extends from the northern interior of Western Australia across the Northern Territory and through the eastern interior. This activity merges with a cold front over the southeast of Australia. The speckled cloud over the Bight and the area west of Tasmania depicts a pool of cold air behind the front.
A ridge of high pressure over southern Western Australia is maintaining mostly clear conditions apart from some low cloud along the southern coast.
