Satellite Notes for the 0000UTC chart on 25 November 2014

Issued at 11:20 am EDT Tuesday on 25 November 2014

An extensive, broad cloud band with embedded showers and thunderstorms stretches over most parts of northern, central and southeastern Australia. This cloud is associated with a low pressure trough and upper level trough extending from the northwest to the southeast of the continent. The cloud band connects to a cold front over the Tasman Sea. Cooler southerly winds behind the cold front are resulting in areas of low cloud about South Australia's coast, most parts of Victoria and Tasmania.

A second cloud band with embedded showers and thunderstorms over central parts of WA is associated with another trough that extends through WA.
