A cold front is producing a middle level cloud band and thunderstorms over
Tasman Sea. Cold air behind the front is depicted by the speckled low cloud near
the Tasmanian, Victorian and NSW coastline.

High cloud and isolated thunderstorms over the northwest of the country are
associated with an upper level trough and jetstream.

A high pressure system over the southwest of the country is producing some low
cloud near the southern WA and SA coast as well.
