Satellite Notes for the 1200UTC chart on 27 November 2014

Issued at 11:06 pm EDT Thursday on 27 November 2014

A broad area of low pressure dominates the northern half of the continent with a trough extending from the far southwest corner of WA, through the Kimberley region, across the Northern Territory's Top End and then down through southern Queensland and into NSW. This system is generating an extensive cloud band with embedded thunderstorms across most parts of the north and through southern parts of WA.

Areas of low cloud are evident to the east of a high pressure system situated over the eastern Bight.
