Cloud associated with seasonal shower and thunderstorm activity is evident over
the north of the country. 

A cloud band with embedded thunderstorms can be seen extending into the Southern
Ocean as a broad area of low pressure migrates eastwards with the progression of
a cold front, to the south of the continent. Low cloud, in the wake of the cold
front, is extending over southen parts of southwestern WA.

Areas of low cloud along the east coast and adjacent inland are the reult of an
onshore airstream.
