Areas of middle level cloud with embedded thunderstorms over the interior of the
continent is associated with a broad surface trough. A second surface trough is
moving along the Queensland coast, with patchy cloud observed across the
southeast coast.

The deep low pressure system over the Tasman Sea has generated a spiral of low
and middle level cloud, and continues to move east towards New Zealand.

A strong cold front is crossing the western coast of Tasmania, with low cloud
associated with the front observed across coastal Victoria and southeast South
Australia. Cold air to the west of the front is represented by cellular clouds
and occasional thunderstorm activity.

Low cloud is also affecting the southern coast of Western Australia within a
light onshore flow, associated with a ridge of high pressure.
