IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for the 0000UTC chart on 03 May 2016 Issued at 11:00 am EST Tuesday on 03 May 2016 Middle to high level cloud streaming across the central and eastern parts of the continent is associated with an upper level trough and a jetstream. Embedded thunderstorms can be seen within this cloud band over the central parts of NT and the interior of WA. The cloud band moving across coastal South Australia, Victoria and Tasmania is associated with a strong cold front. Very active convection is occurring in the large pool of cold air west of the front, as represented by the speckled cloud over the Great Australia Bight. A high pressure system over the southern Indian Ocean is directing a moist onshore flow over southwest WA and has led to low cloud in the area. Thunderstorm activity over the Top End of the Northern Territory is due to a humid easterly wind flow over the area. Cloud with embedded thunderstorms over the northern Tasman Sea is due to surface troughs.
