Cloud over the southern parts of Victoria, Bass Strait, Tasmania and the
southeast parts of South Australia is due to a series of surface troughs ahead
of 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

Further north, onshore winds are causing low cloud along the east Queensland
coast as well as over the Gulf of Carpentaria.

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.
