Australia Satellite Notes
A broad blanket of cloud is spreading across the interior in strong upper winds, but only light rain is reaching the surface, if at all. A cloud band is crossing WA, triggering showers. Low cloud is being pushed over SA, VIC and TAS in icy westerly winds, leading to some showers.
Icy and windy weather affecting parts of the NSW central-west and Blue Mountains will continue into tomorrow, although strong coastal winds are easing, the Bureau of Meteorology (BoM) says.
After a slow start to the snow season and a week of small to no surf, an intense cold front has brought some happiness to snowboarders and surfers in Victoria and New South Wales.
Parts of WA have been receiving persistent showers in recent days, propelling some locations well past their monthly average.
