IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for the 1800UTC Chart on 29 September 2016 Issued at 5:48 am EST Friday on 30 September 2016 A cloud band associated associated with a strong cold front stretches from the east coast of Queensland over the Coral and Tasman Seas then curving to a low west of Tasmania. A complex low pressure system is located over central Victoria. The low and front are generating a large cloud mass over most of New South Wales, Victoria, Tasmania, and southeast South Australia. A field of convective cellular cloud can be seen in the cold air behind the front over southern South Australia. A patchy cloud band can be seen near a surface trough extending from the Top End to northern Queensland. Cloud over northwest coastal areas of Western Australia is extending from convective activity over the Indian Ocean. Cloud associated with a weak cold front is moving over the far southwest of Western Australia. The remainder of Western Australia and Central Australia is mostly clear due to a ridge of high pressure extending from the Indian Ocean.
