Satellite Notes for 1200UTC chart on 25 October 2014

Issued at 11:00 pm EDT Saturday on 25 October 2014

A patchy middle and upper level cloud band extends from the interior of WA across northern SA to the border between QLD and NSW. Isolated thunderstorms are visible within the band over western SA and the WA interior. This cloud is associated with a broad area of low pressure trough.

Middle level cloud due to trough and isolated thunderstorms are present about NSW and the western Tasman sea.

An area of cloud over SW Western Australia is due to the passage of a weak cold front.

Other areas remain mainly cloud free.
