IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for the 0000UTC Chart on 31 July 2016 Issued at 11:28 am EST Sunday on 31 July 2016 A high pressure system located over New South Wales extends a ridge across central Australia. Clear skies are evident across central and northern areas of the country. Southeasterly winds are bringing localised patches of low cloud onto the Queensland coast. Further south, a cold front with its associated cloud band has moved over the Tasman Sea. Patches of low level cloud are visible over Victoria and the west coast of Tasmania in the westerly airstream. In the west, a strong cold front is affecting southwest Western Australia. A particularly cold air mass behind the front can be seen by the cellular cloud over the ocean. Some patchy middle level cloud extends over southern districts of WA and South Australia, and also southwestern NSW, due to a low pressure trough.
