Australia Satellite Notes
Thick cloud with a series of troughs is generating showers and thunderstorms from eastern VIC, over NSW, QLD, the NT and northern WA. Cloud with a deep low is producing gusty showers over TAS. Speckled cloud following a front is producing gusty cool showers over VIC and SA.
Thunderstorms are on the move through New South Wales and southern Queensland once again today, while southern states shiver.
The most widespread heat in five years could grip parts of southern and eastern Australia next week.
Parts of Victoria, Tasmania and South Australia could be lashed by storms and damaging winds on Thursday as a cold front sweeps across Australia's southeast.
