The embedded thunderstorms off the New South Wales coast are being triggered a
low pressure trough over the Tasman Sea. While patchy low cloud near the coast
and ranges in Tasmania, Victoria and New South Wales is due to the cool
southwesterly airstream.

A cold front is moving across the Great Australian Bight producing a middle
level cloud band and isolated thunderstorms near the Nullarbor coast.

High cloud can be seen over central Australia with a strong subtropical
jetstream. A jetstream is also bringing high cloud from over the Indian Ocean
towards the west coast of WA.
