IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for the 0000UTC chart on 13 October 2015 Issued at 12:08 pm EDT Tuesday on 13 October 2015 A patchy cloud band extends from southern Queensland over northeast New South Wales to the Tasman Sea due to a trough of low pressure. Isolated thunderstorms are present over northeast NSW due to the trough. Areas of low level cloud associated with a moist southeasterly flow can be seen over the southern NSW and Victorian coasts, and Tasmania. Further west, a broad trough of low pressure extends from the Kimberley region through the interior of Western Australia. Patchy cloud is occurring in the vicinity of the trough with more extensive middle level cloud streaming through the interior due to the influence of a jet stream. Another trough on the far west coast of WA is producing some convective cloud. The remainder of Australia is mostly clear apart from a little cloud about the coasts of the tropics.
