Some low level cloud can be seen offshore along the NSW coast and parts of
Victoria associated with the airmass in the wake of a cold front that has now
moved into the Tasman Sea. 

A second weaker cold front extends a patchy cloud band over the Great Australian
Bight brushing the central coast of SA. 

A thick cloud band associated with a cold front approaching southwest WA
stretches through the southern Indian Ocean down to a deep low in the Southern

Remnant patchy cloud from afternoon isolated thunderstorm activity through the
NT's Top End.

Upper level cloud streaming away from tropical convection over the northern
Indian Ocean, sweeps across northern WA and into central Australia.
