IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for the 1200UTC chart on 30 August 2015 Issued at 11:00 pm EST Sunday on 30 August 2015 A band of patchy cloud with a few embedded thunderstorms extends from the Kimberley region to western parts of South Australia and is associated with a surface trough. Patchy low cloud also remains about western parts of WA in the wake of a cold front which has slipped to the southeast of the state. Another cold front is approaching from the southwest. Low cloud over parts of southeastern Australia lies within a moist southerly airstream to the west of a low over the Tasman Sea. A cloud band to the north of the low is due to a developing trough.
