Satellite Notes for the 0000UTC chart on 06 May 2016
Issued at 11:09 am EST Friday on 06 May 2016

An extensive cloud band, with embedded thunderstorms, is extending from the
Indian Ocean to the northwestern and central parts of the country. This is
associated with an upper level trough. High cloud is streaming over Queensland
ahead of the main cloudband due to an upper level jetstream. 

High cloud over southwest WA is also associated with an upper level trough.
While a cold front is producing low cloud over northeast Tasmania and near the
South Australian coast. Patches of low cloud over west coast of Tasmania is due
to an onshore westerly flow behind the cold front.
