Australia Satellite Notes

Cloud crossing TAS with a cold front is generating gusty rain. Cloud over northeast QLD & southwest WA in onshore winds is bringing the odd shower. Cloud over northwest WA with a trough is causing the odd drop of rain. Skies are mostly clear elsewhere under high pressure.
