IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for the 1200UTC chart on 28 April 2016 Issued at 11:41 pm EST Friday on 29 April 2016 A ridge of high pressure extends along the Queensland coast and is associated with a blocking high in the Tasman Sea. This system is maintaining a moist onshore air stream and generating patchy low cloud over eastern districts of Queensland. A cloud band is streaming through the interior of the country and extends across NSW and eastern Victoria. This is associated with an upper level jet stream and continues to produce showers and areas of rain through NSW and eastern Victoria. Further south, a cold front is moving across Tasmania while another front is impacting the South West Land Division of Western Australia. This front extends further south from Western Australia to connect with an intense low over the Southern Ocean. Mostly clear across the remainder of Australia apart from some convective cloud about the northern Gulf of Carpentaria.
