A cold front and associated cloud band with isolated thunderstorms is crossing
the far southwest of South Australia, with areas of middle level cloud covering
Victoria, southern New South Wales and Tasmania. A second cloud band directly
behind this front is associated with another cold front that is also approaching
the southeast.

More middle level cloud is extending across central Western Australia due to a
developing trough.

The rest of the country remains clear due to the large high pressure system
centred over eastern New South Wales.
