Satellite Notes for 0600UTC chart on 2 October 2014

Issued at 6:06 pm EST Thursday on 02 October 2014

Southeast South Australia and southern Victoria are affected by low cloud due to cool southerly winds ahead of the high pressure system. Cloud from a cold front can be seen near and over Tasmania.

In the west a low pressure trough is generating patchy cloud over central Western Australia while a moist onshore airstream is driving some low cloud onto the coast north of Perth.
