A pool of cold air with speckled convective cloud is moving over southeastern
Australia and Tasman Sea in the southerly flow behind a cold front near New
Zealand. Isolated thunderstorms can be seen near the surface troughs off the
coast of New South Wales and southeast Queensland. Vigorous southerly flow
driven by the high pressure ridge also pushing areas of low level cloud through
Victoria and southeast New South Wales.

Areas of cloud over the northern WA are generated with a mid-level disturbance.

High level clouds over southwest WA are associated with a upper level trough
ahead of the surface troughs over the Indian Ocean.

The remainder of the continent is mostly cloud free.
