Northern Territory Satellite Notes
Thick cloud over the Top End associated with a developing tropical low is causing rain and embedded thunderstorms. Skies are generally clear over central and southern parts under a ridge of high pressure.
Parts of Victoria have already received almost double the average rainfall this month, and some areas have recorded the wettest April in 16 years.
New Zealanders are bracing for a week of wild weather.
The skies above New South Wales farms have been filled with smoke in recent weeks as growers burn a huge load of dry stubble left over from last year's record crop yields.
