A cold front moving north will continue to bring freezing temperatures, rain and strong winds.

While severe weather warnings have been lifted in Victoria, New South Wales and Tasmania, all three states and southeast Queensland have high wind warnings in place.

weather zoneAnthony Sharwood said satellite images over Australia show “two classic winter cloud patterns” that indicate even colder weather to come.

‘On the left, we have a classic band of northwesterly clouds. To the right, a field of mottled clouds off the east coast,” he said.

‘The left-hand cloud band has already produced good falls across parts of south-west Western Australia and is producing light falls this Thursday morning across parts of southern South Australia, including Eyre and Yorke Peninsulas.

Weatherzone’s Anthony Sharwood said a satellite image (pictured) over Australia shows “two classic winter cloud patterns” indicating the weather to come.

“As for the speckled cloud, the pattern occurs when cold air moves over a relatively warm area of ​​the ocean, causing a large number of individual cumulus clouds to develop over a wide area with areas of clear sky in between.” .

‘Mottled clouds can be clearly seen in the waters off southern Queensland. With such cold air moving north and clouds and moisture remaining well off the coast, it’s no wonder nights are currently very cold in Queensland, especially in the southern hinterland.

Cloudy skies over Sydney on Thursday will turn to showers on Friday and Saturday.
