Satellite Notes for the 0000UTC chart on 10 February 2016

The monsoon trough and a low in the Coral Sea are triggering an extensive area
of showers and thunderstorms.

A low pressure system near the base of Cape York Peninsula and a trough across
the tropical north of the country is generating shower and thunderstorm activity
over northern Queensland and northern parts of the NT.

A high pressure ridge over the south of the continent is maintaining mostly
clear conditions across most areas to the south. Patchy low cloud visible near
the coastal parts of southern WA, South Australia, Victoria, NSW and Queensland
is associated with a moist southeasterly flow.

A cloud band associated with a cold front is moving past southern Tasmania, with
high cloud crossing Tasmania, SE South Australia and southern Victoria.
