Extensive cellular cloud associated with a cold airmass is moving across the
Southern Ocean and over the southeast states. Thick mid to high level cloud off
the Vic/NSW coast is in the wake of a fast moving cold front. 

Low level stratocumulus cloud over the Bight waters and the southern coast, is
trapped underneath a subsidence inversion is associated with High pressure
centered over the Bight, extending a ridge into central Australia. 

A mass of convective cloud from thunderstorms over the Top End and northern Cape
York Peninsula is triggered by a low level trough and airmass moisture.  

An extensive area of cloud and associated shower and thunderstorm activity
extends over the western WA. 

Remaining parts of central Australia is relatively cloud free.
