Western Australia North Satellite/Lightning
Western Australia Satellite Notes
High jetstream cloud streaming over western WA is not bringing any showers. Low cloud over the eastern interior within a trough is triggering the odd thundery shower. Scattered cloud over the southwest with onshore winds are generating very light, isolated showers.
For most of Australia's frost-prone areas the frost season has started later than any other year since 2007 but now it has arrived with a shudder.
Although temperatures across the southern states have been more seasonal over the recent days, temperatures along the eastern seaboard have remained quite balmy.
Water is flowing into outback Lake Eyre, but somewhat differently from past flooding of the remote saltpan, travel guide Rex Ellis says.
