Australia Satellite Notes
A band of cloud over TAS, NSW and QLD with a cold front and trough is generating areas of rain and storms. Speckled cloud in the wake of the front over SA and VIC is causing squally showers. Cloud over the Top End in an unstable onshore flow is bringing a few storms.
Strong winds and heavy rain lashed parts of Victoria overnight, with hundreds of residents calling the State Emergency Service (SES) for help.
Heavy rains across Tasmania could bring relief for the state's farmers and severely depleted hydroelectric dams.
In India, 330 million people across 10 states are in the grip of a crippling drought and heatwave.
