Extensive cellular cloud associated with a cold airmass is moving across the
Southern Ocean and over the southeast states. Thick mid to high level cloud has
extensive areas of rain falling over Bass Strait and northern Tasmania. 

Low level stratocumulus cloud over the Bight waters and the South Australian
coast, is trapped underneath a subsidence inversion is associated with High
pressure centered over the Bight, extending a ridge into central Australia. 

A large mass of convective cloud from thunderstorms overnight is over the Top
End, triggered by a low level trough and airmass moisture. High level cirrus
cloud is streaming from this mass across northern Queensland to the Wide Bay
Burnett coast and is linking with cloud associated with a trough and reminant
cold front moving east over the Tasman Sea. 

An extensive area of cloud and associated shower and thunderstorm activity
extends over the west Australian coast from the Pilbara to the Southwest Land
Division. 

Remaining parts of central Australia is relatively cloud free.
