Cloud over Victoria, Bass Strait, Tasmania and the southeast parts of South
Australia is due to a series of surface troughs ahead of a cold front over The
Great Australian Bight. Westerly winds behind the front are resulting in patchy
areas of low cloud about the southern Western Australia coast.

Further north, onshore winds are causing low cloud along the east Queensland

The remainder of Australia is relatively clear due to a high pressure system
centred over the central parts of New South Wales.

Ex-Tropical Cyclone "Raquel" remains slow moving near the Solomon Islands and is
generating broad areas of convective cloud.
