IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for the 0000UTC chart on 3 August 2015 Issued at 12:05 pm EST Monday on 03 August 2015 A cold front extends from eastern Victoria, across waters east of Tasmania into a low pressure system to the southeast of Hobart. A significant pool of cold air behind this front is seen crossing Tasmania, producing showers, hail and snowfalls to low levels. Low cloud and windy conditions associated with this system are also impacting Victoria and southeast NSW. A large area of cloud over the Indian Ocean is associated with a mid level disturbance, with patchy high cloud starting to stream eastwards across the Western Australia coast. Low cloud is seen across the Bight and is trapped under a weak ridge of high pressure. A trough and a cold front in the Tasman Sea are triggering a band of thunderstorms with high and middle level cloud extending over the South Island of New Zealand. The remainder of the country is mostly clear.
