IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for the 1800UTC chart on 31 January 2015 Issued at 5:16 am EDT Sunday on 01 February 2015 Areas of mostly middle level cloud cover large parts of Western Australia and adjacent parts of South Australia and the Territory. Embedded thunderstorms can also be seen over parts of the Kimberley and Gascoyne regions. These areas of cloud are associated with a surface trough which stretches from central WA to the Northern Territory and also an upper low just off the WA west coast. Isolated thunderstorms remain about parts of Tropical North Queensland while the storms associated with a surface trough over southeast Queensland and the far northeast of NSW have dissipated or cleared to the east overnight. Tropical cyclone Ola remains slow moving well to the east of Queensland in the Coral Sea. Areas of cloud wrapping around a weakening low pressure system in the Tasman Sea cover parts of Tasmania, Victoria and the far southeast of New South Wales.
