Thunderstorm activity is evident off the NSW coast in the cold airmass behind a
cold front that is moving through the Tasman Sea.

A cold front and associated cloud band lies over southwest WA and extends south
wrapping around a low pressure system located south of the Great Australian
Bight extending some mid to high level cloud over southern SA, VIC and TAS.

Another cold front is approaching SW corner of WA.

The rest of the country remains clear due to the large high pressure system
centred over NSW.
