Western Australian Satellite/Lightning
Western Australia Satellite Notes
Bright looking cloud over western and southern parts of WA is associated with the jetstream and not producing any rain. Patchy low cloud over the southern coastline in cool and unstable air is generating a few showers. Skies are clearer in the north under a high pressure ridge.
The latest bushfire outlook indicates a heightened risk of forest fires in southern Australia this summer.
After one of the best starts to a season in a decade, disappointing winter rain has dwindled crop prospects in Western Australia's Eastern Wheatbelt.
Overnight, Melbourne experienced very warm temperatures under a blanket of cloud ahead of a cold front.
