Satellite Notes for the 1800UTC chart on 20 August 2014

Issued at 5:00 am EST Thursday on 21 August 2014

Areas of low cloud are moving onto the New South Wales and southern Queensland coasts within a moist south/southeasterly airflow. Areas of low and middle level cloud also remain over the southern interior of Queensland while a band of high cloud is developing off the Capricornia coast to the east of an upper trough.

A cloud band moving across the southwest of WA is associated with a prefrontal trough ahead of an approaching cold front.
