Satellite Notes for 1800UTC Friday 02 December 2016
Issued at 6:40 am EDT Saturday on 03 December 2016

A broad area of low pressure covers most of the continent with associated low
pressure troughs extending through the interior. This combined with a warm moist
airmass is resulting in middle level cloud with widespread showers and
thunderstorms across northern Australia, the interior of WA and northern SA.

Patchy low level cloud is evident across coastal southern Australia in a cool,
onshore flow. In the west, wispy high-based cloud is evident over southwest WA
brought along by an upper level jet streak and ahead of a weak cold front.
