Satellite Notes for 1200UTC Chart on 11 March 2018
Issued at 1:07 am EDT Monday on 12 March 2018

The monsoon trough is extending from Top End of Northern Territory through the
northern Gulf of Carpentaria, parts of northern Queensland and out into the
Coral Sea. Middle and high level cloud with embedded thunderstorms can be seen
in the vicinity of the monsoon trough.

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.

An upper level trough is producing middle level cloud over central NT and inland
WA. A low pressure system near north coast of WA is combining with afternoon
land heating to produce isolated thunderstorms.

A band of mid to high level cloud is visible over the Indian Ocean and extending
towards the far southwest of the country.
