IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for the 1800UTC chart on 04 July 2015 Issued at 5:29 am EST Sunday on 05 July 2015 Cloud over the southern parts of Victoria, Bass Strait, Tasmania and the southeast parts of South Australia is due to a series of surface troughs located over the The Great Australian Bight. A cold front can be seen moving across the southwest parts of Western Australia with isolated thunderstorms visible within the associated cloud band further south. Onshore southeast winds are causing low cloud along the east Queensland coast as well as over Gulf of Carpentaria. The remainder of Australia is relatively cloud free due to a high pressure system centred over the central parts of New South Wales. Ex-Tropical Cyclone "Raquel" remains slow moving near the Solomon Islands and is generating broad areas of convective cloud.
