Australia Satellite Notes
Thick cloud over eastern NSW and QLD in a deepening low pressure trough is bringing showers and thunderstorms. Cloud in the north and west with a series of troughs is producing showers and storms. Skies are clearer over SA, VIC and TAS under a ridge of high pressure.
Some $140 million will be spent on flood mitigation in Adelaide's inner-south and south-west over the next 20 years after an agreement between the State Government and five local councils.
Perth is enjoying a warm and dry end to what has otherwise wet and relatively cool summer.
Parts of Australia's eastern seaboard could receive more than a month's worth of rain in the next week, raising the risk of flooding during the opening days of autumn.
