Australia Satellite Notes
Cloud extending from the Gulf of Carpentaria across to northeastern NSW with a trough is causing areas of rain and storms. Cloud over the Bight with a front and trough is causing showers and storms to coastal SA. Skies are clearer in the southeast under a high pressure system.
Heavy rainfall that caused flooding across southern Western Australia a week ago has filled Perth's river systems with sediment and nutrients, as well as potentially harmful bacteria.
While many Gulf of Carpentaria residents rejoiced at the thorough drenching , others are glancing over their shoulders with a sense of fear.
An impressive area of thunderstorms swept across the southwest of the country last night.
