A 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
extends over southern SA and western Victoria as a broad area of cellular cloud
with isolated thunderstorms. High cloud associated with this front extends over
remaining parts of Victoria and southern NSW. Further west, onshore flow is
generating low cloud over southern coastlines.

Afternoon heating is generating some cumuloform cloud over the NT and Kimberley.
An upper level trough and jet stream is responsible for remaining middle and
high level cloud over central and northern parts of the continent.

Low cloud is also affecting parts of the Queensland coast from a moist onshore
airstream.
