Australia Satellite Notes
Low cloud over the SA coast with a cold front is bringing isolated thundery showers. Scattered cloud over central WA, lower NT, SA, northern QLD and eastern VIC with a series of troughs are generating showers and storms. Skies are generally clear elsewhere under high pressure.
For most of Australia's frost-prone areas the frost season has started later than any other year since 2007 but now it has arrived with a shudder.
Although temperatures across the southern states have been more seasonal over the recent days, temperatures along the eastern seaboard have remained quite balmy.
Water is flowing into outback Lake Eyre, but somewhat differently from past flooding of the remote saltpan, travel guide Rex Ellis says.
