Satellite Notes for the 0000UTC Chart on 27 June 2016
Issued at 11:00 am EST Monday on 27 June 2016

A cloud band is streaming over southern Queensland, NSW and eastern Victoria.
This is associated with a broad upper level trough and jet stream. Thunderstorm
activity is visible in this cloud off the NSW coast.

A weakening cold front has progressed through Victoria and Tasmania overnight
and moved into the Tasman Sea. Some patchy low cloud remains in its wake.

A little low level cloud is evident about the far southwest of Western Australia
while a ridge of high pressure is keeping skies clear through the interior.
