interior of WA through western SA to the eastern Bight. A low level cloud band
is evident west of the middle level cloud over the Great Australian Bight and is
associated with the passage of a cold front.

A broad trough of low pressure over northern Australia is triggering
thunderstorms over the Kimberley, Top End and northern QLD this morning.

Areas of thick smoke, appearing as low cloud, is evident over eastern NSW and
parts of southeast QLD.
