A complex low pressure system with a cold front and surface trough is moving
across the Bight. Thunderstorms are occurring in the airmass wrapping around the
low and also along the cold front stretching from the South Australia/Northern
Territory border down to the Bight. High cloud is streaming across the southeast
of the county ahead of the cold front. While low cloud is affecting the
southwest land division of WA behind the front. 

There are also some isolated thunderstorms over the Kimberley and northeast NSW.
While the remainder of the country is generally clear.
