Satellite Notes for the 0600UTC chart on 16 September 2014.

Issued at 5:00 pm EST Tuesday on 16 September 2014

A trough stretches from the southeast of QLD through northeast NSW to a low in the northeast of VIC. The trough and low is producing a broad area of cloud with isolated thunderstorms. Cloud associated with the low is also affecting TAS and the southeast of SA.

Patchy middle level cloud with isolated thunderstorm about southern-central parts of WA is due to a middle level disturbance.

The remainder of Australia is mostly cloud free apart from some patchy low cloud about the far southwest of WA and also parts of the tropical coast of Queensland within a light onshore airflow.
