Issued at 11:00 am EST Wednesday on 01 October 2014

An active cold front and its associated cloud band is moving across the Tasman Sea with convective airmass and its isolated thunderstorms to follow over Tasman Sea just off the SE coast. Low clouds as a result of onshore wind covers parts of southern coastal regions of SA, VIC and TAS.

Most of the remainder of the continent is cloud free although low cloud can be seen near the Tropical North Queensland coast within a moist onshore airflow.
