Satellite Notes for the 1200UTC chart on 23 September 2014

Issued at 12:12 am EST Wednesday on 24 September 2014

Middle level cloud and isolated thunderstorms moving across South Australia are associated with a trough. A cold airstream to the west of the trough is generating low cloud and shower activity over southern parts of Western Australia.

Patchy cloud through Queensland and western New South Wales is due to the combination of an onshore flow and upper level disturbance. Another cloud band extends across the Coral Sea with isolated embedded thunderstorms.

A ridge of high pressure is maintaining mostly clear conditions across the remainder of the country.
