A strong cold front is impacting the southwest of Western Australia with a surge
of cold air behind it causing isolated thunderstorms along the coast. This front
connects to an intensify low south of the Bight. Patchy cloud ahead of the front
lies along a trough extending from the interior of Western Australia to the
Bight.

A weakening East Coast Low is located off the far northern NSW coast. Cloud and
thunderstorms are visible along trough from this low over the Tasman Sea while
another trough over the Coral Sea is generating an area of shower and
thunderstorm activity. Patchy low cloud now extends over the central NSW coast.

The remainder of the country is generally clear due to a ridge of high pressure
from the southeast to the northern interior.
