IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for the 0000UTC chart on 28 April 2016 Issued at 11:03 am 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 airstream 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 and has thickened over the south east due to interactions with surface troughs. A cold front moving through the Great Australian Bight has a well defined cloud band with embedded thunderstorms and a field of cellular cumulus in the cold air in the wake of the front. Also 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.
