Over the north of the country, yesterdays thunderstorm activity has slowed as
part of the typical diurnal convective cycle.

The south of the country is dominated by a thick cloud band associated with a
cold front moving through the Bight, linking up to a surface trough which leans
back all the way the the Gascoyne region of Western Australia. This cloud band
has embedded thunderstorm activity throughout, with and area of active storms
over central South Australia.

Low cloud extends over the southwest of WA in the cold air behind this front.
