A strong and slow-moving high pressure system in the Bight continues to dominate
the weather pattern over much of Australia. This high pressure system is
directing a cool south-westerly flow over Victoria and parts and New South Wales
and South Australia, resulting in areas of low cloud.

Patchy cloud across Tasmania is associated with a trough and cold front that
continue to move into the Tasman Sea.

High cloud spilling over northern Western Australia and parts of the Northern
Territory is from thunderstorms over the Indian Ocean.

A thick band of cloud to the south-west of the continent is associated with a
very strong cold front moving up from the Southern Ocean, which will affect
south-west Western Australia later this week.
