A strong cold front is affecting the southwest of Western Australia with a
severe weather warning current for damaging winds and damaging surf. A pool of
cold unstable air is evident behind the front as depicted by the speckled cloud.
Middle and high level cloud with isolated embedded thunderstorms extends through
the interior of Western Australia to the Eucla district. Thunderstorms are also
visible about the South East coastal district. 

High pressure is keeping much of the eastern interior of Australia clear.
Southeasterly winds are bringing low cloud and showers to parts of the
Queensland coast and northern NSW coast. Patchy high cloud is gradually clearing
the southeast of Australia which then merges with a cold front over the southern
Tasman Sea. Fog and low cloud patches remain for parts of eastern Victoria and
the southern coast and ranges of NSW.
