Satellite Notes for the 1200UTC chart on 1 April 2015
Issued at 11:54 pm EDT Wednesday on 01 April 2015

A large mass of cloud extends from central Western Australia to south of
Tasmania. This cloud is associated with a trough of low pressure and a strong
upper level trough. Low cloud driven by moist southeasterly winds is over
southern WA.  

An area of cloud over southeast Queensland and the adjacent sea is being
generated by another trough in the middle levels of the atmosphere.

Some thunderstorm cloud is evident over the northern part of the country.
