A trough is moving over the eastern states as a cold front passes to the east of
Tasmania. This is producing pacthy cloud and isolated thunderstorms about
Victoria, New South Wales and Tasmania. A large mass of speckled cloud lies to
the west of this front, bringing some showers and low cloud to coastal southern
Western Australia and South Australia.

Patchy cloud can be seen over parts of the Queensland east coast in a moist
onshore flow, bringing showers.

Some high cloud is streaming over far north Queensland from the north.

The next front can been seen approaching southwest WA from the Indian Ocean.
