IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for the 1800UTC chart on 30 July 2015 Issued at 5:00 am EST Friday on 31 July 2015 The cloud band with isolated embedded thunderstorms over southern Western Australia is due to surface troughs and a low pressure system located to the west. A cold front with associated cloud band can be seen over the Tasman Sea. Patchy low cloud over the Queensland east coast is the result of the southeast trade wind flow. The remainder of the country is mostly clear due to a ridge of high pressure.
