Australia Satellite Notes

Thick cloud around ex-TC Frances in the northwest is triggering rain and storms, mainly offshore. A band of cloud in the southwest with a cold front is generating a few showers. Patchy cloud in the east with onshore winds is bringing the odd shower along the NSW and QLD coasts.
