Australia Satellite Notes
Patchy cloud over eastern parts of QLD with a moist southeasterly breeze feeding a trough is generating showers. Cloud over SA, VIC and TAS with a trough and front is producing cool showers. Cloud with a broad trough over the tropics is also generating thundery showers.
Temperatures will cool down for much of the week for South Australia, Victoria and New South Wales.
The monsoon trough has made a glancing blow of Queensland's Cape York Peninsula and the Top End.
Rain in parts of western Queensland in the past week has raised hope that the drought may finally be over, but the long, dry years have already devastated pastures and wiped out incomes for many farming families.
