A strong cold front with embedded thunderstorms in the Bight continues to make
its way towards the south-east of the country, with a large pool of cold,
unstable air in its wake.

Patchy cloud can also be seen across New South Wales, central Western Australia
and parts of tropical Australia.

The rest of the country remains relatively cloud free due to a ridge of high
pressure.
