Western Australia Satellite Notes

Cooler weather conditions have slowed a bushfire burning through bushland on Eyre Peninsula in South Australia.
It is the last day of a heat spell that has baked New South Wales, and like cinema choc-tops, records continue to melt.
Long-term locals are concerned about the height of the Katherine River in the Northern Territory after successive poor wet seasons.
