A strong cold front has now cleared NSW to the east. Extensive cellular cloud,
depicting a very cold air mass, is visible behind the front across the Tasman
Sea. Southwesterly winds continue to bring some showers to Tasmania and southern
Victoria. 

Areas of low cloud remain over southern Western Australia and the Bight. This
cloud is trapped under the temperature inversion caused by the high pressure
system over South Australia. Further west, a cold front is affecting the far
southwest of Western Australia. 

A line of high cloud stretches across the southern Top End and the Gulf of
Carpentaria.

Cloud streaming down over the Pilbara, WA is associated with a surface trough
and a broad upper level trough.
