IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for the 0600UTC chart on 01 May 2016 Issued at 5:23 pm EST Sunday on 01 May 2016 A slow moving high near New Zealand extends a ridge along the Queensland coast. Moist onshore winds are persisting with patchy low cloud over eastern districts of Queensland. A cloud band is streaming through the interior of the country and merges with a trough moving across NSW and and a cold front over the Tasman Sea. The atmosphere is particularly unstable along the edge of the cold front with an active line of thunderstorms evident. This cold front extends further south to connect with an intensifying low pressure centre located just to the southeast of Tasmania. Afternoon shower and thunderstorm activity can be seen across the Top End of the Northern Territory. Mostly clear across the remainder of the country apart from patchy low cloud along the southern Western Australia coast.
