IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for the 1200UTC chart 29 May 2016 Issued at 11:19 pm EST Sunday on 29 May 2016 Thunderstorms are evident over the western Tasman Sea near a surface trough. Patchy low level cloud about the coast and ranges in Tasmania, Victoria and inland New South Wales is due to a cool southwesterly airstream. Likewise, a southerly onshore flow has brought low cloud over much of southwest WA. A trough extends from central Australia down to the Great Australian Bight which is producing a patchy middle level cloud band and isolated thunderstorms. Further west, a jetstream is pulling high cloud from over the Indian Ocean towards the west coast of WA.
