A low pressure system and associated cold front has crossed Western Australia
and is now approaching South Australia. An extensive cloud band is moving with
this system, with high level cloud streaming ahead of the main cloud band. This
feature is producing isolated showers and thunderstorms in the Bight and near
the southwestern coast of Australia. 

A second cold front is moving into the Tasman Sea and is responsible for the
cloud band influencing Tasmania, Victoria, and southeastern New South Wales.

Some patches of low cloud are visible on the northeastern coast of Queensland in
light onshore flow.
