Satellite Notes for 0600UTC chart on 20 October 2014

Issued at 6:27 pm EDT Monday on 20 October 2014

A cloud band with embedded thunderstorms is over southeastern Western Australia, western South Australia and the Great Australian Bight. This cloud is associated with a low pressure system near the south coast of WA and an upper level disturbance. Cloud wrapping around the low covers southwest WA. Patchy high cloud ahead of this system lies across parts of the southeast mainland.

Low cloud is over eastern New South Wales in the wake of a cold front, now over the Tasman Sea.

Cloud in a moist onshore airstream affects the Queensland North Tropical Coast.
