Satellite Notes for the 1800UTC chart on 18 April 2014.

Issued at 5:00 am EST Saturday on 19 April 2014

Patchy high cloud lies about the far northern tropics of Australia with a few isolated thunderstorms remaining near the north coast of the Top End and the northern tip of Cape York Peninsula.

A weak cold front is moving along the New South Wales central coast bringing patchy low cloud to central and southern coastal areas. Patchy low cloud also lies about southern Victoria and Tasmania within the cooler southwesterly airflow behind the front.

A little patchy cirrus covers parts of the southwest of WA ahead of a frontal system which is approaching the far southwest of the state. The remainder of the continent is predominantly cloud free.
