Current Weather Summary and Future Developments:
A low will move across southeastern Australia into the Tasman Sea over the next
day or so with an associated trough moving through the Alice Springs District
today, though little, if any, cooler air is expected as winds tend southeast. A
high follows the low across the Bight and southeast Australia, but doesn't
extend a ridge very far into the Territory due to a low forming over the
Pilbara. This low slowly moves towards the southwest Alice Springs District
during the week as a weak cloud band develops.

Forecast for Monday:
Sunny apart from morning fog patches near the coasts. Some cloud developing
during the afternoon over the Top End. Light to moderate east to southeast

Fire Danger: Very High over the Top End and Gulf Country, High elsewhere north
of the Alice Springs District.

Forecast for Tuesday:
Mostly sunny with morning fog patches near the east coast. One or two early
morning brief showers about the northwest coast. Moderate southeast to northeast
winds, fresh and gusty during the morning in the Barkly.

Wednesday Outlook:
Morning fog patches near the east coast and becoming cloudy in the Alice Springs
District. One or two brief early morning showers about the far northwest coast. 

Thursday Outlook:
Areas of cloud and isolated light showers in the Alice Springs District. Mostly
sunny in the north. 

The next routine forecast will be issued at 5:00 pm CST Monday.
