Satellite Notes for 1800UTC chart on 25 October 2014

Issued at 5:00 am EDT Sunday on 26 October 2014

A middle and upper level cloud band extends from the interior of WA across SA to the Bight. Isolated thunderstorms are visible within the band over western SA and the WA interior. This cloud is associated with a broad area of low pressure trough.

Middle level cloud due to troughs are present about Tasmania and the Tasman sea.

Low level cloud over SW Western Australia is due to the passage of a weak cold front.

Other areas remain mainly cloud free.
