Satellite Notes for the 0000UTC chart on 24 September 2014

Issued at 12:25 pm EST Wednesday on 24 September 2014

Middle level cloud and isolated thunderstorms are moving over the southeast of the country with a low pressure trough and cold front. A cool onshore airstream to the west of that system is generating low cloud over the southeast of Western Australia and the western half of South Australia.

Patchy cloud over eastern Queensland is due to the combination of an onshore flow and upper level disturbance. Another cloud band extends across the Coral Sea with isolated embedded thunderstorms.

A ridge of high pressure is maintaining mostly clear conditions across the remainder of the country.
