Satellite Notes for the 1200UTC chart on 20 September 2014.

Issued at 11:00 pm EST Saturday on 20 September 2014

Cool southwesterly winds are resulting in areas of low cloud over southern Victoria and Tasmania. Cloud associated with a trough is causing convective cloud and isolated thunderstorms along the southern Queensland coast. Patchy middle and high level cloud with embedded thunderstorms is evident through central parts of the continent due to an upper level low pressure system.

Generally clear conditions throughout the remainder of the country, with some patchy high cloud streaming across far north Queensland.
