Satellite Notes for 0600UTC Chart on 06 March 2018 Issued at 5:47 pm EDT Tuesday on 06 March 2018 A low pressure system over the southern Gulf of Carpentaria is responsible for an area of middle level cloud and embedded thunderstorms. Isolated thunderstorms can also be seen over northern parts of Western Australia, the Northern Territory and Queensland near a surface trough. An upper level trough is generating a middle and high level cloud band with embedded thunderstorms. The cloud band can be seen extending from central and southeastern Queensland, through northeastern New South Wales and out over the Tasman Sea where it combines with a surface trough. Another upper level trough is producing patchy areas of middle and high level cloud near the Western Australia and South Australia border. A high pressure system over the Bight is directing onshore winds and some patchy low level cloud near coastal parts of eastern Victoria and New South Wales.
