Australia Satellite Notes
Cloud over QLD in a deepening trough is causing rain and storms in central and eastern parts to increase. Cloud across the Top End and northern WA in another trough is generating showers and storms, with showers in southern WA. High pressure is keeping it mostly dry elsewhere.
Fire danger is about to spike in South Australia, Tasmania, Victoria and New South Wales and about to drop in Western Australia as an area of hot, dry wind heads east.
Heavy storms are lashing central Queensland, whilst rain and strong winds affect the coast.
Parts of Central NT have had their hottest morning in 7 years.
