A pool of cold air with speckled convective cloud is moving over southeastern
Australia  and western Tasman Sea in the southerly flow behind a cold front
approaching New Zealand.

A region of mid-level cloud over eastern WA, near the NT border is associated
with a nearby trough. Further south, patchy areas of low cloud over western NSW
and northwestern Victoria is trapped under a temperature inversion caused by a
dominant high pressure ridge.

A developing low pressure system and trough is moving northeast across Bight
waters towards the Eyre Peninsula in SA. High cloud is crossing the southwest of
WA associated with a low a cold front well offshore. Another cold front is now
slipping southeast across the Southern Ocean south of the Bight.

The remainder of the continent is mostly cloud free.
