IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for the 1200UTC Chart on 01 October 2016 Issued at 12:07 am EST Sunday on 02 October 2016 Low to middle level cloud over southeast Australia is associated with a deep westerly surge of cold air being directed by a complex low pressure system centred over the south Tasman Sea. In the north, middle level cloud over northwest Australia is the result of tropical moisture being advected away from occasional thunderstorm activity southwest of Java. While a moist southeasterly onshore flow has brought overcast low cloud over the far northeast coast of Queensland. In the west, a cloud band is tracking across southern WA. This cloud band is associated with a cold front and developing low pressure system south of the Bight. The remainder of the continent is mostly clear due to a ridge of high pressure.
