Australia Satellite Notes

Broken cloud is crossing SA, VIC, TAS and NSW behind a cold front, leading to showers, storms and snow to 900 metres in the alps. Cloud over southwest WA with another front is generating showers. A blanket of cloud over central WA in strong upper winds is causing patchy rain.
