Cold, speckled cloud which brought showers and cold conditions to the south-east
of the country is continuing to move out into the Tasman Sea. This cold air is
triggering thunderstorms over the Tasman Sea, where warm sea surface
temperatures are causing instability in the cold air mass. 

A middle to high level cloud band currently over the south-east, marking the
next cold front moving through the region.

A low pressure system off the west coast on the country is evident by a swirling
mass of low level cloud with isolated thunderstorms.

The rest of Australia remains relatively cloud free.
