Satellite Notes for the 1800UTC chart on 13 February 2016
Issued at 5:51 am EDT Sunday on 14 February 2016

 
An extensive area of cloud with shower and thunderstorm activity in the Coral
Sea is associated with the monsoon trough and Ex-tropical Cyclone 'Tatiana'with
some low and middle level cloud extending along the south coast of Queensland.

The monsoon trough extends west near the Cape York Peninsula and the tropical
north and is generating shower and thunderstorm activity near the far northern
Queensland, NT and WA coasts.

A high pressure ridge over the south of the continent is maintaining mostly
clear conditions but onshore winds are causing some low cloud over the southwest
parts of WA and the Great Australian Bight.

A cold front is moving across Tasmania with mainly low cloud affecting Tasmania
and the southeast parts of SA and southwest parts of Victoria near a low
pressure trough.

Tropical Cyclone "Uriah" with associated cloud and thunderstorms is located to
the far northwest, near Cocos Island
