Satellite Notes for the 0600UTC chart on 15 September 2014.

Issued at 5:00 pm EST Monday on 15 September 2014

A cold front is moving over the southern Tasman Sea towards New Zealand and, in its wake, patchy low cloud covers parts of Tasmania. A line of thunderstorms to the east of the NSW Central Coast is associated with a prefrontal trough.

Areas of cloud over southeastern parts of South Australia, Victoria, and New South Wales are due to a slow-moving low pressure system.

Most of the rest of Australia is cloud free although a little patchy low cloud can be seen about the far southwest of Western Australia within a light onshore airflow.
