A cold front is crossing southwest parts of Western Australia with patchy low
and middle level cloud crossing the area. Middle and high level cloud extends
along the front through the Southern Ocean and to western Tasmania. High cloud
is drifting ahead of the front to the Tasman Sea. Extensive cold air convective
cloud with isolated thunderstorms follows the front over the Southern Ocean.

Low cloud is evident over Far North Queenslands due to a moist easterly onshore
flow. Middle level cloud extends over the northern Interior of WA.

The remainder of the continent is mainly cloud free under the influence of a
high pressure ridge extending across central Australia.
