A strong cold front extends from central NSW across the Tasman Sea connecting to
a complex low south of Tasmania. A broad pre-frontal trough is aligned from
central Australia to the near east of the front off the NSW coast. Middle level
cloud is streaming ahead of the front with embedded thunderstorm activity.
Patchy cloud with isolated showers and storms is visible across northern and
central districts of NSW while high level cloud is streaming over eastern Vic
and southern NSW.

A series of low pressure systems persists over the Southern Ocean with a
westerly airstream established through the Bight and Bass Strait. This is
resulting in shower activity and isolated thundestorms. Further west, patchy low
cloud is visible over the South West Land Division of Western Australia with
another frontal system approaching from the southwest.

Mostly clear through the interior and across the north of the country.
