IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for the 1200UTC chart on 02 May 2016 Issued at 11:48 pm EST Monday on 02 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. A strong cold front is moving across Tasmania with a large pool of cold air and low cloud behind the front. Thunderstorm activity over the Top End of the Northern Territory is due to a humid easterly wind flow over the area. Surface troughs are responsible for thunderstorms seen over the southeast parts of Queensland and off the coast of NSW.
