Satellite Notes for 1200UTC Chart on 11 December 2017
Issued at 12:04 am EDT Tuesday on 12 December 2017

A broad area of low pressure extends from the Top End of Northern Territory
across Western Australia to west of the Bight, triggering thunderstorms and a
middle level cloud band.

A trough over central Queensland is generating isolated thunderstorms. High
cloud is drifting over northern Cape York Peninsula in the outflow from tropical
thunderstorm activity while a southeasterly airstream along the central and
tropical coast of Queensland is generating areas of low cloud.

A southwesterly airstream over southeast of the country is producing patchy low
cloud over southern Victoria and Tasmania.

Remainder of the country is mostly cloud free under the influence of a high
pressure ridge.
