IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for the 1200UTC chart on 06 July 2015 Issued at 11:00 pm EST Monday on 06 July 2015 A surface trough and weakening low pressure system over Bass Strait is bringing areas of cloud to southern NSW and Victoria. Patchy low cloud over Tasmania lies within the southeasterly airflow to the south of the trough while the tail end of a cold front over the Tasman Sea is approaching the far south coast of New South Wales. Moist onshore winds are resulting in areas of low cloud about southern parts of South Australia. A cold front is approaching the southwest of Western Australia and low cloud in advance of this system covers parts of the Southwest Land Division. Further north, southeasterly trade winds are generating areas of low cloud near the east Queensland coast. Areas of low cloud are also evident about parts of the Top End. The remainder of Australia is mostly clear due to a broad ridge of high pressure through the interior of the country.
