Australia Satellite Notes

Cloud crossing southwestern WA with a cold front is bringing showers. Cloud over southern SA, TAS and VIC due to another cold front is causing showers, falling as snow on the VIC Alps. Patchy cloud on the QLD coast in onshore is only causing the odd shower, mainly to the north.
