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.

A trough which moved through Tasmania yesterday has left a pool of cold, speckly
cloud in its wake.

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

Thick cloud to the south-west of the continent which spirals into a low pressure
system is associated with a very strong cold front moving up from the Southern
Ocean, which will affect south-west Western Australia later this week.
