Australia Satellite Notes

Cloud over southwest WA in a trough is generating severe thunderstorms. Cloud over QLD and NSW in another trough is bringing storms, most intense over the NSW ranges and northern tropics. Low cloud over southern VIC, TAS and SA in cool southeast brings just the odd shower.
