A strong cold front over northeast New South Wales extends over the Tasman Sea
and Tasmania and to the significant low pressure system over southeast
Australia. This is generating a large cloud band and thunderstorm activity over
most of New South Wales, Victoria, Tasmania, southern South Australia and The
Tasman Sea. A field of convective cellular cloud can be seen in the cold air
behind the front over far south South Australia.

A broad cloud band with embedded thunderstorms can be seen near the surface
trough extending from the Top End to central Queensland.

Western Australia and Central Australia is mostly clear due to a ridge of high
pressure extending from the Indian Ocean.
