A cold front and associated trough stretching from Tasmania across the Bight to
the interior of Western Australia is producing a large mass of high and middle
level cloud with some rain and showers over Bass Strait. The cold air to the
west of this front is producing large areas of speckled cloud in the Bight and
Southern Ocean. Another front approaches from the west behind this speckled
cloud.

A trough extends across northern WA and the Northern Territory, with showers and
thunderstorms occurring along this trough. A second trough that extends across
the northern Indian Ocean is producing thunderstorms embedded in middle level
cloud.
