Satellite Notes for 0600UTC Chart on 24 October 2017

A patchy cloud band, with a few embedded showers and thunderstorms, extends from
the Pilbara region of WA thickening as it sweeps southeast over South Australia
before wrapping into a low pressure system centred in the Great Australian Bight
near the Lower Eyre Peninsula of SA. High cloud sweeping away from this system
extends over Tasmanian, Victoria and New South Wales.

Moist onshore flow driven by a high pressure system south of the Bight is
bringing areas of low cloud over southern coasts of WA, SA, VIC and TAS.

Other than localised light showers along the QLD coast, the remainder of the
country remains relatively cloud free.
