IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for the 1200UTC Chart on 25 August 2016 Issued at 11:00 pm EST Thursday on 25 August 2016 A surface trough and associated upper level trough are generating an extensive cloud band just off the Queensland east coast which extends to the North Island of New Zealand and beyond. Patchy middle-level cloud about the northeast of South Australia and adjacent parts of Queensland, New South Wales and the Northern Territory is due to an upper low. An unstable southwesterly flow is bringing patchy low cloud to Tasmania, southern Victoria and the east coast of New South Wales. A few thunderstorms can also be seen just off the southern New South Wales coast. A strong cold front and its associated cloud band lies to the west of Western Australia.
