Northern Territory Satellite Notes
A blanket of high cloud is crossing the far southern quarter of NT in strong upper winds, but it's staying dry. Scattered low cloud is building over the Top end in a weak trough, causing only the odd shower to develop.
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.
