IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for the 0000UTC chart on 02 December 2015 Issued at 12:10 pm EDT Wednesday on 02 December 2015 Areas of cloud with some isolated convection are evident over large parts of Western Australia, northern Northern Territory and the Gulf of Carpentaria due to a broad area of low pressure. High level cloud is streaming over central Australia from these storms due to the jet stream. A band of cloud with embedded thunderstorms extends from central Queensland over northeast New South Wales to the east of Victoria and Tasmania due to a trough of low pressure joining a cold front over the Tasman Sea. Patchy low level cloud can be seen over Tasmania and southern Victoria in the southerly air stream. Southern parts of WA and most parts of SA are clear due to a ridge of high pressure extending over these areas.
