A strong cold front is moving over the southwest of Western Australia. A pool of
cold unstable air with isolated thunderstorms is evident behind the front, over
Perth and southwest parts, as depicted by the speckled cloud. Middle and high
level cloud with isolated embedded thunderstorms extends through eastern parts
of Western Australia and well south into the Bight. High cloud also extends over
South Australia.

High pressure is keeping much of the eastern interior of Australia clear.
Southeasterly winds are bringing low cloud to parts of the Queensland coast and
northern NSW coast. A deep low and cold front is moving through the Tasman Sea
with areas of mid-high level cloud extending back towards the NSW coast.
