Cloud with isolated thunderstorms over central and southeast parts of WA is the
combined result of a surface and an upper level trough. High cloud can be seen
streaming across SA ahead of the upper level trough.

A cold front with associated cloud band and embedded thunderstorms is
approaching the southwest parts of WA.

Low cloud can be seen in the southerly wind flow along the NSW coast and is due
to a complex low pressure system located over the Tasman Sea.

A strong high pressure system located to the south of SA, extends a ridge over
the remainder of the country and is maintaining mostly clear skies.
