Satellite Notes for the 0000UTC chart on 13 October 2015

A patchy cloud band extends from southern Queensland over northeast New South
Wales to the Tasman Sea due to a trough of low pressure. Isolated thunderstorms
are present over northeast NSW due to the trough.

Areas of low level cloud associated with a moist southeasterly flow can be seen
over the southern NSW and Victorian coasts, and Tasmania. 

Further west, a broad trough of low pressure extends from the Kimberley region
through the interior of Western Australia. Patchy cloud is occurring in the
vicinity of the trough with more extensive middle level cloud streaming through
the interior due to the influence of a jet stream. Another trough on the far
west coast of WA is producing some convective cloud. The remainder of Australia
is mostly clear apart from a little cloud about the coasts of the tropics.
