A large area of isolated thunderstorms over the Tasman Sea is associated with a
trough of low pressure.

A band of cloud with embedded thunderstorms associated with a cold front is
moving over the Great Australian Bight. High level cloud is streaming ahead of
the front over southern South Australia and western Victoria and Tasmania.

Another cloud band associated with a strong cold front is approaching the
southwest.

A large high pressure system over the eastern part of the country is responsible
for keeping the rest of the country mainly cloud free.
