Australia Satellite Notes
Broken cloud is crossing SA, VIC, TAS and NSW behind a cold front, leading to showers, storms and snow to 900 metres in the alps. Cloud over southwest WA with another front is generating showers. A blanket of cloud over central WA in strong upper winds is causing patchy rain.
Residents are warned to take care outdoors as snow, hail and wind gusts send Tasmania into a big chill.
Following an uncharacteristically warm week for southeastern Australia, a solid line of cold fronts are on the way to bring us back to winter with a bang.
The fact that Terra Australis is a land of extremes is not a new concept.
