Australia Satellite Notes

Scattered cloud over the Top End, WA's Kimberley and northern QLD with a trough is generating patchy rain and a few thundery showers. Streaky cloud moving over TAS with a front is causing the odd shower. Low cloud over eastern QLD in onshore winds is bringing a few showers.
