IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for the 1800UTC chart on 28 January 2015 Issued at 6:18 am EDT Thursday on 29 January 2015 A broad area of low pressure stretches across northern Australia and extends down western WA to the southwest of the state. This is causing cloud with isolated thunderstorms in a broad band from the north to the southwest of WA, over the Top End of the Northern Territory and over Far North Queensland. A cloud band has formed along the Queensland southern coast near a trough. Areas of cloud and thunderstorms are visible off the coast of New South Wales. Another trough with a developing low over the Tasman Sea has generated an extensive cloud band. The rest of the country remains mostly clear apart from some low cloud along the southern coast and also over Tasmania.
