IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for the 1200UTC chart on 04 May 2016 Issued at 12:11 am EST Thursday on 05 May 2016 Areas of low cloud can be seen near southeast South Australia, Tasmania, Victoria and southwest NSW under a ridge of high pressure. Middle to high level cloud streaming across the eastern parts of Queensland is associated with weakening upper level trough and a jetstream. Thunderstorms are evident near a broad area of low pressure over the northern and central parts of Western Australia. An onshore surface flow has brought low cloud to the southwest coast of WA. Middle to high level cloud triggered by an upper trough over the Indian Ocean can be streaming across the northwest of the continent.
