Satellite Notes for the 0000UTC chart on 23 August 2014

Issued at 12:18 pm EST Saturday on 23 August 2014

A high pressure system over the southern Tasman Sea is directing a moist onshore flow and patchy low cloud with isolated thunderstorms onto the New South Wales coast.

Areas of cloud with isolated thunderstorms over the southeast parts of Queensland and northeast New South Wales is due to the combined effect of a surface trough and an associated weak low pressure system located off the southeast Queensland coast.

A cold front and its associated cloud band are moving across the southeast parts of South Australia.
