Australia Satellite Notes
Cloud extending over WA and into central Australia with a weak trough is causing patchy rain and the odd storm. Brighter cloud in southeast SA with trough is generating showers and a few storms. Cloud over northern tropical QLD in moist, unstable air is bringing showers.
Surf lifesavers have issued a warning to beachgoers as a large swell closes stretches of the New South Wales coastline.
For most of Australia's frost-prone areas the frost season has started later than any other year since 2007 but now it has arrived with a shudder.
Although temperatures across the southern states have been more seasonal over the recent days, temperatures along the eastern seaboard have remained quite balmy.
