An upper level disturbance and associated middle to upper level cloud is moving
off the southeast Queensland coast, with a broad area of low cloud over
remaining parts Queensland. A band of high cloud extends from waters off the
Kimberley coast of Western Australia to western interior parts of Queensland.

A cold front with a highly active line of embedded thunderstorms continues to
move east through the Tasman Sea. Cellular clouds with isolated thunderstorms
can be seen in the cold air behind the front over Tasmania, southern Victoria
and adjacent waters.

A high pressure system is generating onshore winds with patchy low cloud to the
southern coastlines of Western Australia and South Australia while keeping
central and remaining western and central parts of the continent clear.
