IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for the 00000UTC chart on 4 May 2015 Issued at 11:39 am EST Monday on 04 May 2015 A strong cold front is impacting the southwest of Western Australia with a surge of cold air behind it causing isolated thunderstorms along the coast. This front connects to an intensify low south of the Bight. Patchy cloud ahead of the front lies along a trough extending from the interior of Western Australia to the Bight. A weakening East Coast Low is located off the far northern NSW coast. Cloud and thunderstorms are visible along trough from this low over the Tasman Sea while another trough over the Coral Sea is generating an area of shower and thunderstorm activity. Patchy low cloud now extends over the central NSW coast. The remainder of the country is generally clear due to a ridge of high pressure from the southeast to the northern interior.
