Middle and high level cloud is extending over southern WA. This is associated
with a low pressure system to the west of Perth. Some of this cloud has been
swept eastward over southern SA and Victoria by a strong cold front approaching
the southeast. Frontal cloud has reached Tasmania.

Cloud from moist southeast trade wind flow is over parts of the Top End and Cape
York Peninsula.

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