A low pressure system and associated cold front are crossing South Australia,
advancing an extensive band of middle and high level cloud that extends from
northern Western Australia, through SA, and into the Bight. Colder air behind
the front is producing patchy, middle level cloud across most of central and
southern WA. Higher level cloud ahead of the front is pushing into New South
Wales and Victoria. 

A second cold front has moved into the Tasman Sea, leaving patchy, middle level
cloud over Tasmania.

Some patches of low and middle level cloud are visible over northeastern
Queensland in a light onshore flow.
