Satellite Notes for 1800UTC Chart on 09 March 2018

Issued at 6:28 am EDT Saturday on 10 March 2018



The monsoon trough is extending from a low pressure system located over northern

NT, through the southern Gulf of Carpentaria, parts of northern Queensland and

out into the Coral sea. Middle and high level cloud with embedded thunderstorms

can be seen within the vicinity of the low and monsoon trough. Another trough

over northern WA is causing patchy convective cloud.


A high pressure system located in the Tasman Sea is bringing onshore easterly

airflow to the eastern Australian coast and generating low level cloud along

coastal parts of New South Wales and Queensland.


Further west, the humid easterly winds are combining with an upper level trough

and producing middle level cloud over Queensland, central Australia and northern

South Australia.


A band of mid to high level cloud is visible over the Indian Ocean and extending

towards the far southwest of the country.


To the east, middle and high level cloud can be seen spiralling around Tropical

Cyclone Hola which is currently located to the northeast of New Caledonia
