A strong cold front is affecting the southwest of Western Australia with a
severe weather warning current for damaging winds and damaging surf. A pool of
cold unstable air is evident behind the front as depicted by the speckled cloud.
Middle and high level cloud with isolated embedded thunderstorms extends through
the interior of Western Australia to the Eucla district. 

High pressure is keeping much of the eastern interior of Australia clear.
Southeasterly winds are bringing low cloud and showers to parts of the
Queensland coast. Patchy high level cloud is clearing eastern Victoria and NSW
and merges with a cold front over the southern Tasman Sea.
