IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for the 0600UTC chart on 2 August 2015 Issued at 6:11 pm EST Sunday on 02 August 2015 A strong cold front now lies to the east of Tasmania. A significant pool of cold air behind this front is seen crossing the southwestern half of the state, producing showers, hail and snowfalls to low levels. Low cloud associated with the northern sector of the front is still moving across central Victoria. Patchy low cloud over the Queensland's east coast is the result of moist southeasterly trade wind flow. Areas of low cloud can be seen over southern districts of Western Australia and the nearby Indian Ocean, and is due to moisture trapped under a high pressure ridge. A trough has moved out across the Tasman Sea, and is triggering a band of thunderstorms with high and middle level cloud extending towards New Zealand. The remainder of the country is mostly clear.
