Satellite Notes for the 0000UTC chart on 21 April 2014.

Issued at 11:16 am EST Monday on 21 April 2014

Patchy high cloud can be seen over the northern tropics of Australia with a few isolated thunderstorms over the waters to the north of the country.

A mid level trough is generating a mainly high cloud over the Great Australian Bight and also much of southeastern Australia.

High cloud extends from Severe Tropical Cyclone "Jack", which is well to the west of Australia, to the Gascoyne district in WA.
