IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for the 1200UTC chart on 29 July 2015 Issued at 11:43 pm EST Wednesday on 29 July 2015 The middle to upper level cloud band moving across southeast Australia is associated with a middle level disturbance. A surface trough is causing cloud and isolated thunderstorms over southwest WA. Another surface trough is responsible for low cloud over the Great Australian Bight and coastal areas of South Australia. The cloud band further west of WA is associated with a low pressure system. In the east, a high pressure system over New South Wales is directing a moist onshore airflow over the northeast coast of Australia, producing areas of patchy low cloud. The rest of the country is mostly clear due to a ridge of high pressure.
