IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for the 1200UTC chart on 26 November 2015 Issued at 11:02 pm EDT Thursday on 26 November 2015 Middle to high level cloud is spreading across the southwest of the continent. An active trough of low pressure over the west coast of Western Australia has generated a broad area of embedded thunderstorms. Similarly, a combination of moisture, afternoon heating and a surface trough has triggered extensive thunderstorm developing over the Top End of the NT this evening. Thunderstorms also extend along a trough through central Queensland and into northeast New South Wales, while an area of middle level cloud lingers across northeast NSW, and extends into the central Tasman Sea. A very sharp and well defined line of thunderstorms stretches across the central Tasman Sea to the south island of New Zealand, associated with a cold front and pre-frontal trough. Further thunderstorms are observed in the cold unstable air west of this cold front, to the south and east of Tasmania. The fresh southwesterly winds behind this cold front has also produced mountain waves over the eastern ranges of Victoria.
