IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for 0600UTC Saturday 11 December 2016 Issued at 5:28 pm EDT Sunday on 11 December 2016 Middle level cloud and thunderstorms are visible about northern parts of WA and the NT, the Gulf of Carpentaria and also southwest and eastern parts of Queensland. Isolated thunderstorms are developing over northeast New South Wales. This cloud is associated with surface troughs. Patchy middle level cloud and developing isolated thunderstorms are visible along western parts of southern WA, near a trough. Cloud over the southern Indian Ocean, extending to the west coast of WA, is due to an upper level trough and an approaching cold front. A cold front can be seen moving across the Tasman Sea towards New Zealand. Cool onshore winds behind the cold front are causing patchy low cloud over eastern Victoria, southeastern New South Wales and Tasmania. A high pressure ridge is keeping the remainder of the continent mainly cloud free.
