Cloud across Queensland and northern New South Wales is being generated by moist
onshore airflow to the east of an inland surface trough. The trough stretches
from the Gulf of Carpentaria to the southern NSW coast. An upper air disturbance
to the west is supporting this surface trough.

Areas of low cloud over Victoria and the southeast of South Australia are
evident near a high pressure ridge extending across the south of the continent.

A complex low pressure system is approaching the southwest of Western Australia.

A large mass of deep convective cloud can be seen near the Solomon Islands
associated with Tropical Cyclone "Raquel".
