Satellite Notes for the 1800UTC chart on 28 November 2015
Issued at 5:30 am EDT Sunday on 29 November 2015

Areas of middle level cloud drift across the northern half of Australia with
isolated embedded thunderstorm activity over the Northern Territory and
Queensland. Isolated thunderstorms are also occuring over the northeast of NSW
and through the interior of Western Australia. A broad low pressure trough is
aligned through these areas.

Further south, middle level cloud is streaming from the Bight across Victoria
and Tasmania ahead of an upper trough. Low cloud along the NSW coast and ranges
is due to humid northeasterly winds. A ridge of high pressure is maintaining
clear skies over the Southwest Land Division of Western Australia. A cold front
is visible moving to the south of Western Australia.
