Convective cellular clouds are evident in the post-frontal cold air over
southeast Australia. 

The cloud band over the Bight is due to a second cold front. Low level cloud is
evident over far southwest WA in an onshore westerly flow. Further north, patchy
middle level cloud with embedded thunstorms is present over the Interior of WA.
This is mostly due to an inland trough of low pressure.

A moist onshore flow over far north Queensland is producing some low cloud and
showers for the area.

The rest of Australia is predominantly free of cloud due to the subtropical
ridge of high pressure.
