IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for the 0600UTC chart on 30 March 2015 Issued at 6:45 pm EDT Monday on 30 March 2015 Extensive area of cloud about the west coast of Australia is primarily caused with an upper level disturbance. A surface trough is combining with an upper disturbance to generate convective activity embedded in the middle level cloud over eastern NSW and south central Queensland. Isolated thunderstorm activity can also be seen near the Top End of Australia. Isolated shower activity is persisting along the east coast of Queensland in the southeasterly trade flow. The remainder of the country is cloud free under the influence of a high pressure ridge.
