Australia Satellite Notes
Speckled cloud in the wake of a strong cold front is generating gusty cold showers and the odd thunderstorm over TAS, VIC and southern parts of NSW. Thick cloud with a low pressure trough is producing isolated showers and the odd thunderstorm over southwestern parts of WA.
A cold front has brought snow to the Alps of New South Wales, priming a good weekend to hit the snow fields.
There's rarely a time when the world's driest continent is not faced with a drought.
Australia's ski resorts are finally becoming covered by fresh, natural snow, a result of the first decent cold blast in a few weeks.
