Satellite Notes for the 0600UTC chart on 26 November 2015
Issued at 6:20 pm EDT Thursday on 26 November 2015

High cloud is seen across the southern half of Western Australia and about the
west of South Australia. Middle level cloud extends into central parts of the
Northern Territory. Afternoon thunderstorm activity is occurring in western and
northern districts of WA, associated with a broad area of low pressure. 

Extensive afternoon thunderstorms are seen over the Top End of the NT.

Thunderstorms also extend along a trough through central Queensland and into
northeast New South Wales, while an area of middle level cloud lingers across
central areas of NSW, and extends into the central Tasman Sea. 

A very sharp and well defined line of thunderstorms stretches across the central
Tasman Sea to the south island of New Zealand, associated with a surface trough.
A second area of storms just to the west of this feature is associated with a
cold front, with the northern reaches of this front moving through the southern
coast of NSW.

A cold and unstable southwesterly airstream remains behind the front across
Tasmania and southern Victoria, with speckled cell based cloud producing showers
of rain and small hail.
