Australia Satellite Notes
A cloudband stretching from WA to southeast QLD along a trough is generating patchy rain and the odd storm. Brisk onshore winds are producing showers in TAS and southern parts of SA. Bright cloud over the Top End with an unstable onshore flow is causing thundery showers.
On the weekend wild winds battered South Australia, Tasmania and Victoria, toppling trees and bringing down powerlines and there is more of that on the way.
Vast areas of Queensland have experienced the hottest May night since records began, some of which stretch back to the 1800s.
For the majority of Australia April was warmer and drier than average.
