Satellite Notes for the 0000UTC chart on 14 February 2016
Issued at 12:49 pm EDT Sunday on 14 February 2016

An area of cloud with isolated thunderstorms can be seen in the southern Coral
Sea. This is associated with Ex-tropical cyclone "Tatiana".

Further north the monsoon trough stretches across the northern Coral Sea to the
north of the Australian continent and to the northwest of WA. Cloud and
thunderstorm activity is visible in the vicinity of the trough. Tropical Cyclone
"Uriah" is located to the far northwest of WA, west of Cocos Island. High cloud
can be seen streaming southwards from the cyclone over the Indian Ocean and
across the southwest parts of WA.

A high pressure ridge over the south of the continent is maintaining mostly
clear conditions but onshore winds are causing some low cloud over coastal areas
in the south of the continent including Tasmania. 

Cloud over southern NSW and into the Tasman Sea is associated with surface and
middle level troughs. Thunderstorms are occurring within this cloud band to the
east of Tasmania. 

Another trough with isolated thunderstorms is moving across the southern parts
of Tasmania.
