A patchy cloud band extends over parts of the Tasman Sea with the tail end
sweeping back over southeast Victoria and southeast NSW. The cloud band is
associated with a weak cold front that is moving through the region.

A thick cloud band with embedded showers and thunderstorms sweeps across the
Great Australian Bight associated with a cold front that wraps into a complex
low pressure system. The leading edge of the cloud band is starting to move over
western parts of Victoria and Tasmania as it approaches. 

A low pressure system southwest of Perth is evident by the speckled cloud that
swirls around wrapping into the low. This feature is  approaching southern WA
and will move across the state during Friday. Severe Weather Warnings continue
across southern WA associated with this system.

A high pressure system off the New South Wales coast is keeping eastern and
northern Australia mostly cloud free.
