Satellite Notes for the 0600UTC chart on 10 October 2015
Issued at 5:00 pm EDT Saturday on 10 October 2015

Patchy mid level convective cloud, associated with a surface trough, can be seen
over southeastern SA, NSW and VIC. While another trough is generating convective
middle to high level cloud over much of WA.

Low level cloud over the east coast of QLD is due to moist onshore flow directed
by a high pressure system over the Tasman Sea.

The remainder of the country is mostly cloud free.
