Australia Satellite Notes

Thick cloud in the northwest near Tropical Cyclone Frances is triggering heavy rain and the odd storm, mainly offshore. Low cloud over coastal parts of SA, NSW and QLD with onshore winds is causing a few light showers. Skies generally clear over the interior with high pressure.
