IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for the 0600UTC chart on 1 March 2015 Issued at 6:14 pm EDT Sunday on 01 March 2015 A trough of low pressure persists across inland areas of the Northern Territory and Queensland triggering some showers and thunderstorms. Areas of cloud with thunderstorms cover much of Western Australia. This is due to an infeed of moisture and a developing upper trough to the west. An active cold front is moving up the New South Wales coast. This front has an associated cloud band that stretches southeastward over the Tasman Sea. Areas of low cloud lie in the wake of the front over Tasmania and southern Victoria. Thunderstorm activity continues over the tropical north of the country.
