IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for the 0600UTC chart on 13 October 2015 Issued at 6:33 pm EDT Tuesday on 13 October 2015 A cloud band with embedded thunderstorms extends over southern Queensland and northeast New South Wales due to a broad trough of low pressure. Areas of low level cloud associated with a moist southeasterly flow can be seen over the eastern NSW and Victorian coasts. With low cloud also to the west of Tasmania. Further west, another broad trough of low pressure extends from the Kimberley region through the interior of Western Australia, with a further trough over the far southwest of WA. These troughs are responsible for the large extent of convective cloud present over most of WA, with isolated thunderstorms in various locations. High level cloud is streaming over the southeast of WA due to the influence of a jet stream. Northern parts of the Northern Territory and WA also feature some convective cloud due to a broad area of low pressure. A cloud band associated with a cold front is approaching the southwest of the country. The remainder of Australia is mostly clear due to a ridge of high pressure.
