IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for the 1800UTC chart on 28 April 2016 Issued at 5:01 am EST Saturday on 30 April 2016 A ridge of high pressure extends along the Queensland coast and is associated with a blocking high in the Tasman Sea. This system is maintaining a moist onshore airstream and is generating patchy low cloud over eastern districts of Queensland. A cloud band is streaming through the interior of the country and extends across NSW to the Tasman Sea. This is associated with an upper level jet stream and continues to produce showers and areas of rain through NSW. Further south, a cold front is clearing to the southeast Tasmania while another front is advancing into the Bight. This front extends further south to connect with an intense low over the Southern Ocean. Mostly clear across the remainder of Australia apart from some convective cloud about the northern Gulf of Carpentaria and Cape York Peninsula.
