Queensland Satellite Notes

Cloud building in far north QLD as easterly winds become more moist and unstable is causing showers and storms to become heavy. This may leading to some flooding. Patchy cloud on parts of the east coast in weaker onshore winds is bringing the odd shower. Mostly clear in the west.
