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

Patchy cloud across Tasmania is associated with a trough and cold front that has
moved over the region into the Tasman Sea.

Some high cloud is spilling into the Pilbara and Kimberley districts of Western
Australia from thunderstorms over the Indian Ocean, as well as across the Top
End from thunderstorm activity in the Arafura Sea.

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.
