Australia Satellite Notes
Patchy cloud with a cold front over southern WA is causing gusty showers. Bright cloud over the interior with a trough is generating thunderstorms, mostly in SA. Low cloud over the southeast with a moist onshore flow is causing just the odd light shower.
Prolonged dry weather has Australia's south-east and west set for above-average bushfire risk in the coming months.
If you thought Melbourne's winter was colder than usual, you are not wrong.
The Bureau of Meteorology has confirmed what many Tasmanians already suspected, it has been the coldest winter in nearly 50 years.
