A strong and persistent high pressure system in the Bight continues to dominate
the weather pattern over much of Australia, with much of the continent remaining
dry and relatively cloud free.

Thicker cloud over Tasmania, southern Victoria and southeastern NSW is
associated with the passage of a trough.

Some high cloud originating from thunderstorms to the north of the country can
be also seen streaming down over northwest WA, the NT Top End and northern
Queensland.
