Satellite Notes for the 1200UTC chart on 25 December 2014
Issued at 12:34 am EDT Friday on 26 December 2014

Showers and thunderstorms are active across the Kimberley and Top End due to a
humid unstable airmass. Cloud is streaming from this region southeastward over
Queensland and eastern New South Wales to the southern Tasman Sea. This weather
complex is being driven by a strong upper trough to the west.

Cloud associated with a cold front is moving through central Victoria and
Tasmania. Speckled cloud is visible behind the front over Bass Strait which
depicts a cold airmass. Southerly winds are bringing areas of low cloud across
the Bight and southern Western Australia coast.

Cloud associated with Tropical Cyclone "Kate" can be seen northwest of Western
Australia near Cocos Island.
