Australia Satellite Notes

Cloud in southwest WA is thickening as a cold front merges with a trough, causing showers to increase and the odd storm to develop. Cloud over TAS, VIC and far southern NSW is thinning out under a weak high, causing most showers to clear. Generally clear elsewhere in drier winds.
