The strong cold front is now located over western New South Wales and Victoria
and extends to the significant low pressure system over the Bight. This is
generating a large cloud band and thunderstorm activity over western New South
Wales, western Victoria and southern South Australia. A field of convective
cellular cloud can be seen in the cold air behind the front over far south South
Australia and Western Australia.

An upper level cloud band is streaming down from tropical convection over
Indonesia to northeast Australia. This cloud is brought along by the upper level
subtropical jet stream. A surface trough extending from the Top End to southeast
Queensland is causing isolated thunderstorms.
