Queensland Satellite Notes
Patchy cloud over northern inland QLD near a weak trough is causing a few showers and storms. Skies are generally clear over the remainder of the state due to a ridge of high pressure. These clear skies are allowing it to become very hot in the west and south.
This year is set to be the hottest on record, due to a strong El Nino season and global warming, the World Meteorological Organisation (WMO) says.
A strong front is bringing damaging winds, with rain and snow to follow.
