IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for the 0600UTC chart on 04 May 2016 Issued at 5:19 pm EST Wednesday on 04 May 2016 The passage of a cold front over southeast Australia yesterday has brought overcast low cloud to southeast South Australia, Tasmania, Victoria and southwest NSW in a dry westerly airstream. Middle to high level cloud streaming across the northern and eastern parts of the continent is associated with an upper level trough and a jetstream. A surface trough of low pressure extending from north Queensland into the Coral Sea has generated isolated thunderstorms near its vicinity. Thunderstorms are also evident near an upper trough over central Australia and a surface trough over the Central Wheat district of Western Australia. An onshore surface wind has brought low cloud to the southwest coast of WA. Further north, middle to high level cloud triggered by an upper trough over the Indian Ocean is observed streaming across the Pilbara and Gascoyne districts of WA.
