IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for the 1200UTC chart on 30 April 2016 Issued at 11:08 pm EST Saturday on 30 April 2016 A slow moving high in the Tasman Sea extends a firm ridge along the Queensland coast. Moist onshore winds are persisting with patchy low cloud over eastern districts of Queensland. A cloud band is streaming through the interior of the country and across NSW. The atmosphere is particularly unstable through western NSW and Victoria with active thunderstorms. This weather is associated with a jet stream and upper level trough advancing into the area. Isolated thunderstorms are also visible off the NSW coast due to a low pressure trough Further south a cold front is moving across the Agricultural districts of South Australia and extends south connecting with an intensifying low over western Bass Strait. A line of showers and isolated thunderstorms is visible on the front while extensive cloud is streaming west of Tasmania. Strong upper level winds are enhancing the development of this system. Mostly clear across the remainder of the country apart of patchy low cloud along the southern Western Australia coast and some convective cloud over the Gulf of Carpentaria.
