South Australia Satellite Notes
A thick band of cloud over northern parts with a broad low pressure trough is generating showers and thunderstorms, some severe. Patchy cloud is breaking up over southern parts as a high pressure system becomes more established.
Following a good start to January 2017 rainfall, when 125mm fell during the first 48 hours of the year, conditions have been relatively dry for the Northern Territory capital.
In the early hours of the morning, Brisbane had its warmest minimum temperature since at least 1999, when the mercury halted its descent at 28 degrees just after 3am.
Another intense low pressure system is set to impact New Zealand from this evening, with heavy rain and severe gales forecast.
