Satellite Notes for the 1200UTC chart on 21 September 2014

Issued at 11:00 pm EST Sunday on 21 September 2014

Cloud associated with a strong cold front is moving across Western Australia. Cold air behind the front is bringing showers and thunderstoms to parts of the west coast.

Extensive cloud through eastern Queensland and northern NSW is due to an upper level low pressure system. Isolated thunderstorms are occuring within this cloud mass. Further north, high cloud is streaming from Papua New Guinea across north Queensland and the Coral Sea.

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