Australia Satellite Notes
Thick cloud in the northwest near Tropical Cyclone Frances is triggering 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 elsewhere with high pressure.
Large areas of southern Australia can expect a foggy start to the next few mornings, reducing visibility for the first few hours, even in the southeastern capitals.
The strongest southeasterly wind surge since last Dry Season has swept out any lingering sticky humidity from the summer over a large swathe of the central and eastern tropics.
As the mercury plummets across South Australia ahead of winter, coastal properties are preparing for the inevitable storm surges.
