A strong cold front is progressing across the Bight with showers in its wake
over southern coastal districts of Western Australia. Extensive middle level
cloud is streaming ahead of the front with isolated embbeded thunderstorms
visible near Kangaroo Island and western Bass Strait. Another frontal system is
visible to the west of Tasmania connecting with a low complex further south.
Thunderstorms have developed over western Tasmania ahead of this system. Patchy
cloud persists ahead of the main front over the southeast Australia. The
remainder of the country is mostly clear apart from a little cloud near the west
coast of Western Australia.
