Northern Territory Satellite Notes
Patchy cloud over far northern parts of the Top End within a region of low pressure is not producing any rain. Showers and storms are more confined offshore. Skies remain generally clear elsewhere under a ridge of high pressure.
Temperatures will cool down for much of the week for South Australia, Victoria and New South Wales.
The monsoon trough has made a glancing blow of Queensland's Cape York Peninsula and the Top End.
Rain in parts of western Queensland in the past week has raised hope that the drought may finally be over, but the long, dry years have already devastated pastures and wiped out incomes for many farming families.
