A thick cloud band associated with a cold front continues to move through
southwest WA, with isolated embedded thunderstorm activity. Speckled cloud in
its wake is bringing showers to the South West Land Division. Severe Weather
Warnings continue across southern WA. 

Another cloud band extends from the Bass Strait, over Tasmania and into the
Southern Ocean. This is a result of a cold front which wraps into a complex low
pressure system well to the south of the country.

Thunderstorm activity is evident over south-east Queensland and northern NSW,
with high cloud from these storms spilling into the Tasman Sea.

The rest of the country remains relatively cloud free due to a high pressure
system off the east coast, except for some patchy high cloud over the
south-east.
