A strong cold front is crossing the southeast of Western Australia. The front
extends south and connects with a deep low over the Southern Ocean. High level
cloud can be seen streaming ahead of the main frontal band.

Further east, a field of cold air lies across the Tasman Sea in the wake of
another strong cold front. Thunderstorm activity is evident in this "speckled"
cloud. A similar pattern is also visible over the southwest of Western
Australia.

Cloud over northern and central Queensland and the Coral Sea is due to an upper
trough to the west.
