Australia Satellite Notes

Cloud over TAS in the wake of a cold front and trough is triggering light showers, mainly along the west coast. High jetsream cloud over the interior of QLD and the NT is not producing any rain. Cloud along parts of the QLD coast with onshore winds are leading to the odd shower.
