Satellite Notes for the 0600UTC chart on 18 September 2014.

Issued at 5:06 pm EST Thursday on 18 September 2014

A trough over the Tasman Sea is producing a broad area of cloud with isolated thunderstorms. While a cool southwesterly airstream behind the trough is resulting in areas of low cloud over southeast of the country.

Middle level cloud with the odd thunderstorm can be seen over the southeast of Western Australia and also much of South Australia, this is due to a middle level disturbance. While the remainder of the Australian mainland is mostly cloud free.
