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 located
over the The Great Australian Bight.

A cold front can be seen moving across the southwest parts of Western Australia
with isolated thunderstorms visible within the associated cloud band further
south.

Onshore southeast winds are causing low cloud along the east Queensland coast as
well as over Gulf of Carpentaria.

The remainder of Australia is relatively 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.
