IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for the 0000UTC chart on 7 May 2015 Issued at 11:30 am EST Thursday on 07 May 2015 A deep low pressure system to the distant south of Tasmania is represented by a spiralling mass of cloud. On the northern flank of this low, spotty convective cloud has formed within the coldest air, which is producing showers and isolated thunderstorms across Tasmania, through Bass Strait and across the southern Tasman Sea. Patchy low cloud lies across southern South Australia, through southern and central parts of New South Wales and near the ranges in Victoria. A small area of middle level cloud lies through the interior of Western Australia. The remainder of the country is generally clear due to a ridge of high pressure extending into the central interior from a strong high to the west of Western Australia.
