Satellite Notes for 1200UTC Chart on 23rd September 2017
Issued at 11:25 pm EST Saturday on 23 September 2017

A cold front is moving through eastern Victoria and to the east of Tasmania
connecting to a low near the south coast. Middle level cloud is streaming ahead
of the front with embedded thunderstorm activity. A pre-frontal trough extends
through NSW to central Australia with patchy cloud evident to its east. 

A series of low pressure systems persists over the Southern Ocean with a
westerly airstream established through the Bight. This is resulting in isolated
shower activity over the southern Australia coast. Isolated thundestorms are
evidient about Kangaroo Island. Further west, patchy low cloud is visible over
the South West Land Division of Western Australia with another frontal system
approaching from the southwest.

Mostly clear through the interior and across the north of the country.
