Satellite Notes for the 1800UTC chart on 23 September 2014

Issued at 5:30 am EST Wednesday on 24 September 2014

Middle level cloud and isolated thunderstorms moving across South Australia are associated with a trough and cold front. A cold airstream to the west of that system is generating low cloud and shower activity over southern parts of Western Australia.

Patchy cloud through Queensland and western New South Wales is due to the combination of an onshore flow and upper level disturbance. Another cloud band extends across the Coral Sea with isolated embedded thunderstorms.

A ridge of high pressure is maintaining mostly clear conditions across the remainder of the country.
