New South Wales/ACT Satellite Notes
Cloud is thinning across NSW as a trough moves off the coast, causing patchy rain to contract east. Thicker cloud is moving over the far southeast in another trough, leading to areas of rain. Skies are clearing in the west and north as a high pressure ridge moves quickly in.
Water is flowing into outback Lake Eyre, but somewhat differently from past flooding of the remote saltpan, travel guide Rex Ellis says.
A strong and complex low is moving over New Zealand and has been generating heavy rain, isolated thunderstorms and gale force winds.
The sunrise this morning likely made the ancient sandstone formation of Uluru glow a glorious red at dawn, although cloud and rain from today should lead to more demure morning displays for the next couple of days.
