Areas of mostly middle and high level cloud associated with an upper level jet
stream, can be seen over Victoria and the southeast parts of SA.

The cloud band over southwest Tasmania is associated with a cold front.

Low cloud can be seen along the east coast in a southerly airstream. 

The remainder of Australia is cloud free 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.
