IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for the 0600UTC chart on 28 April 2016 Issued at 5:00 pm EST Friday on 29 April 2016 A ridge of high pressure extends over NSW and Queensland associated with a blocking high in the Tasman Sea. This system is maintaining a moist onshore air stream and generating localised areas of patchy low cloud along the northern New South Wales and Queensland coasts. A middle to high level cloud band streaming over central parts of WA, SA, NSW and Vic is associated with an upper level Jet Stream. The band has thickened over the south east due to interactions with surface troughs. This interaction has helped generate thunderstorms over NSW. A cold front with a well defined cloud band is passing over Vic Tas and south to the Southern Ocean. In the wake of this front, another cold front can be seen in the Bight with the frontal cloud band swirling around the associated low pressure system. There is some low convective cloud over the NT associated with the daytime heating.
