Queensland Satellite Notes

Cloud over southeastern QLD with a low pressure trough is triggering a few showers and thunderstorms. High cloud in the far west is associated with the jetstream and is bringing virtually no rain. Patchy cloud in the far north with onshore winds may produce a few showers later.
