Satellite Notes for the 1200UTC chart on 12 February 2016
Issued at 11:05 pm EDT Friday on 12 February 2016

 
An extensive area of cloud with shower and thunderstorm activity in the Coral
Sea is associated with the monsoon trough and tropical Cyclone 'Tatiana'. Middle
and high level clouds can be seen streaming to the south from the cyclone.

The monsoon trough extends across Cape York Peninsula and the tropical north and
is generating shower and thunderstorm activity about northern Queensland and the
far north of the NT and WA.

A high pressure ridge over the south of the continent is maintaining mostly
clear conditions.

High clouds can be seen streaming towards Tasmania and across Victoria, ahead of
a cold front.
