Satellite Notes for the 1800UTC chart on 23 July 2014

Issued at 5:00 am EST Thursday on 24 July 2014

A large cloud band over southeastern Australia is from a low pressure system over the eastern Bight combining with a broad upper level trough.

Low cloud in the wake of this system is over southern Western Australia and southern South Australia.

Patchy cloud over the east coast of Queensland is due to a moist onshore airflow.
