New South Wales/ACT Satellite Notes
Thick cloud over northern parts of NSW with a deep trough and upper cool air is producing showers and thunderstorms. Patchy cloud over the state's south within this trough and approaching front is only producing isolated light showers, mostly over the Riverina and Tablelands.
