A strong cold front stretches from southeast Queensland over the Tasman Sea and
Tasmania then curving to the significant low pressure system over western
Victoria. The low is generating a large cloud mass with isolated thunderstorm
activity over most of New South Wales, Victoria, Tasmania, southeast South
Australia and The Tasman Sea. A field of convective cellular cloud can be seen
in the cold air behind the front over southern South Australia.
A broad cloud band with embedded thunderstorms can be seen near a surface trough
extending from the Top End to across northern Queensland and along the east
coast to southeast Queensland.
Western Australia and Central Australia is mostly clear due to a ridge of high
pressure extending from the Indian Ocean.
