IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for the 0600UTC chart on 7 May 2015 Issued at 5:16 pm EST Thursday on 07 May 2015 A deep low pressure system to the distant southeast of Tasmania is represented by a mass of cloud. On the northern flank of this low, spotty convective cloud has formed within the coldest air, which now lies mostly over waters to the southeast of the state. Areas of low cloud are seen covering the Bight and the adjacent coast of Western Australia, across southern South Australia, through southern and central parts of New South Wales and over most of Victoria. A few patches of middle level cloud lie through the interior of WA. The remainder of the country is generally clear due to a ridge of high pressure extending into southern Queensland from a strong high to the west of WA.
