A strong cold front now lies to the east of Tasmania. A significant pool of cold
air behind this front is seen crossing the southwestern half of the state,
producing showers, hail and snowfalls to low levels. Low cloud associated with
the northern sector of the front is still moving across central Victoria.

Patchy low cloud over the Queensland's east coast is the result of moist
southeasterly trade wind flow. Areas of low cloud can be seen over southern
districts of Western Australia and the nearby Indian Ocean, and is due to
moisture trapped under a high pressure ridge.

A trough has moved out across the Tasman Sea, and is triggering a band of
thunderstorms with high and middle level cloud extending towards New Zealand.

The remainder of the country is mostly clear.
