IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for the 0000UTC chart on 04 July 2015 Issued at 11:53 am EST Saturday on 04 July 2015 Middle to high level cloud over Victoria, New South Wales and the southeast parts of South Australia, is due to an upper level jetstream and upper level trough. The cloud band stretching across Tasmania and into the Tasman Sea, is associated with a cold front. Another cold front is approaching the southwest parts of WA. Low cloud can be seen along the east coast in a southeasterly airstream. The remainder of Australia is cloud free due to a high pressure system centred over the central parts of New South Wales. Ex-Tropical Cyclone "Raquel" remains slow moving near the Solomon Islands and is generating broad areas of convective cloud.
