IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for the 0600UTC Chart on 23 October 2016 Issued at 6:27 pm EDT Sunday on 23 October 2016 A surface trough and a strong upper disturbance are generating a large cloud band that extends from the Gulf of Carpentaria across eastern Queensland to a cold front and low pressure system over the Tasman Sea. An "arm" of the cloud is wrapping around the low and northward to be east of Bass Strait. A mass of cold air has brought low cloud to Tasmania, southern Victoria and the New South Wales coast. The remainder of the country is relatively cloud-free due to a large high pressure system.
