Australia Satellite Notes
Thick cloud about the Top End coast near a low is generating heavy rain and storms. Cloud scattering over parts of SA, TAS, VIC and southeastern NSW in brisk winds is bringing light showers and Alpine flurries. Cloud over WA in a weak trough is causing showers in the northwest.
Parts of eastern and southeast Australia experienced their coldest temperatures in at least six months this morning.
Tasmania's heritage buildings are taking a battering from gusty winds they were not designed to withstand.
Parts of Victoria have already received almost double the average rainfall this month, and some areas have recorded the wettest April in 16 years.
