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.
Some inland areas of Northern Queensland have had their coldest April morning in at least 60 years.
Large areas of southern Australia can expect a foggy start to the next few mornings, reducing visibility for the first few hours, even in the southeastern capitals.
The strongest southeasterly wind surge since last Dry Season has swept out any lingering sticky humidity from the summer over a large swathe of the central and eastern tropics.
