Victoria Satellite Notes
Patchy cloud increasing over the North East with a low pressure trough is causing isolated showers to develop. Low cloud over the East Gippsland Coast associated with this trough is not producing any rain. Skies remain generally clear elsewhere under a relatively high pressure.
Backyards in Queanbeyan and parts of Canberra have been covered with "golf-ball sized" hailstones and the roof of a supermarket has partially collapsed after a storm hit the region.
A western Queensland church has raised more than $90,000 for a scheme to keep rural contractors in work during the ongoing drought.
Much of southeastern Australia is experiencing its sunniest week since spring and skies have been staying clear at night, effectively giving planet gazers a fine-tuned view of a rare feature.
