Western Australian Satellite/Lightning
Western Australia Satellite Notes
Bright cloud in the southwest with front is generating brisk showers and the odd thunder. Patchy cloud in the east with a trough is causing scattered thunderstorms. The north is cloud free under a weak ridge of high pressure.
Prolonged dry weather has Australia's south-east and west set for above-average bushfire risk in the coming months.
If you thought Melbourne's winter was colder than usual, you are not wrong.
The Bureau of Meteorology has confirmed what many Tasmanians already suspected, it has been the coldest winter in nearly 50 years.
