Satellite Notes for 1200UTC chart 19 January 2017

A trough with embedded low pressure systems extends from the Pilbara district of
WA through central SA and to western VIC. Another trough lies across the QLD/NSW
border area. Thunderstorms can be seen in the vicinity of these troughs. 

A moist north to northwest windflow covers a broad area to the north of the
troughs, triggering thunderstorms over northern WA, the Top End in NT and far
northern parts of QLD. 

Low cloud is visible along the NSW coast due to onshore windflow.

Middle level cloud streaming across TAS and eastern VIC is due to an upper
trough approaching TAS from the west.
