Satellite Notes for the 0000UTC chart on 25 April 2014

Issued at 11:48 am EST Friday on 25 April 2014

Thunderstorm activity over the Arafura Sea and the Gulf of Carpentaria is associated with a tropical low and an active trough.

A large cloud band over southern WA and the Great Australian Bight is now reaching Tasmania. This band is from moisture being transported poleward ahead of a strengthening cold front.

Thunderstorm activity can also be seen near the NSW central coast.
