Satellite Notes for the 0600UTC chart on 25 November 2015
Issued at 6:08 pm EDT Wednesday on 25 November 2015

A broad area of cloud with embedded thunderstorms covers much of the east of
Western Australia, with high cloud streaming across South Australia. This cloud
lies to the east of a sharp upper trough. More extensive upper and middle level
cloud is seen covering Tasmania and southern Victoria. Extensive thunderstorm
activity is seen over remaining northern parts of WA.

A trough extends from central areas of the Northern Territory and into central
Queensland, and are triggering isolated thunderstorms.

A cold front is rapidly moving east across the Southern Ocean towards Tasmania,
with a large area of cold air behind the front represented by speckled cloud.
