IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for the 0000UTC Chart on 25 August 2016 Issued at 11:11 am EST Thursday on 25 August 2016 A surface trough and associated upper level trough are generating an extensive cloud band that covers most of the eastern seaboard and extends out over the Tasman Sea towards New Zealand as well as over parts of the Coral Sea. A weakening low pressure system over South Australia is generating areas of cloud over most of the state, as well as low cloud over the southern coast of Western Australia. Cloud associated with a strong cold front is visible to the west of WA. Patchy low cloud associated with a low pressure trough lies over parts of Tasmania and southern Victoria.
