New South Wales/ACT Satellite Notes

Streams of cloud in the south with a cold unstable airmass are producing a few showers about the ranges, falling as snow down to about 1000m. Mostly clear east of the ranges as the air dries over the ranges. Skies are clearing in the north as a high pressure ridge builds.
