Cloud with thunderstorms over the Tasman Sea is due to a cold front.

Another cold front is approaching the southwest coast of Western Australia with
high cloud streaming ahead of the front.

A high pressure system is directing a moist southwesterly flow across the Great
Australian Bight resulting in low cloud over the south coast of Australia from
the Nullarbor to Wilsons Promontory and western Tasmania.

Middle-level cloud with embedded thunderstorms over the interior of Western
Australia is due to an upper-level trough. 

This trough is also responsible for the middle-level cloud streaming across the
Northern Territory and Kimberley into northwest Queensland.

The rest of the continent is mostly clear due a ridge of high pressure.
