IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for the 1800UTC chart on 25 November 2015 Issued at 5:18 am EDT Thursday on 26 November 2015 A broad area of low pressure over northern Australia has led to extensive areas of low to middle level cloud with embedded thunderstorms over central and northern Western Australia, the NT and northwest Queensland. High cloud from this system, generated with the thunderstorms, is evident over central Australia. Low cloud can be seen over the south coast of WA in a moist southerly airstream directed by a ridge of high pressure. A trough of low pressure over southeast Austrlaia combined with an upper level jet stream has produced the cloud band over eastern Victoria and southern New South Wales. Thunderstorms are also observed in this cloud band. While a secondary cloud band over Tasmania, western Victoria and southeast South Australia is due to a cold front. This cloud mostly consist of low to middle level cloud and a large area of cold unstable air behind the front is evident with the speckled cell based cloud.
