IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for the 1800UTC chart on 03 May 2016 Issued at 5:00 am EST Wednesday on 04 May 2016 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. Isolated thunderstorms can be seen over the northern parts of Western Australia and the Northern Territory, in the vicinity of surface troughs. A cold front with associated cloud band can be seen over the Tasman Sea to the east of Tasmania. A large pool of cold air is visible behind the cold front depicted by cellular low clouds which are affecting the southeast parts of the country. Isolated thunderstorms can also be seen to south of Tasmania in this pool of cold air. Onshore wind flow is causing some low cloud about the southwest coast of Western Australia. High cloud is streaming across the Pilbara and Gascoyne districts of Western Australia and is associated with a jetstream.
