Australia Satellite Notes
Cloud spiralling around a low is generating squally showers across VIC and NSW. A band of cloud ahead of the system in NSW and QLD with an associated trough is generating showers and thunderstorms. Patchy cloud over southern SA in moist onshore winds is causing light showers.
Canberra has shivered its way through the most cold nights since 1997 and its wettest winter since 2005.
It's the weather phrase that makes the coastal dwellers of New South Wales shudder - East Coast Low.
For most people, spring brings the hope of warm weather.
