IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for the 0000UTC chart on 5 March 2015 Issued at 12:33 pm EDT Thursday on 05 March 2015 A monsoon trough is generating areas of thunderstorms about the Kimberley and Pilbara coasts of Western Australia. High and middle level cloud is streaming from this area through the interior and across the Bight. An established upper level trough is generating this extensive cloud band. Thunderstorms are also active over central Australia, and off the coast of the Top End and far north Queensland. Further south, the strong cold front has moved out over the Tasman Sea and an area of speckled cloud depicts a particularly cold air mass over Tasmania and southern Victoria.
