A trough and cold front are moving over the eastern states with a cloud band
ahead of the front bringing showers as it moves over Victoria, New South Wales
and Tasmania. A large mass of speckled cloud lies to the west of this front,
bringing some showers and low cloud to coastal southern Western Australia and
South Australia.

Patchy cloud can be seen over parts of the Queensland east coast in a moist
onshore flow, bringing showers.

The next front can been seen in the far west approaching southwest WA from the
Indian Ocean.
