IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for the 0600UTC chart on 3 August 2015 Issued at 5:44 pm EST Monday on 03 August 2015 A cold front lies over the eastern Tasman Sea and extends into a low pressure system to the east of Tasmania. The coldest air now lies to the east of Tasmania and is represented by occasional thunderstorm cloud. Low cloud lingers about New South Wales, Victoria, Tasmania and coastal South Australia, within the cool air behind this change. A large area of cloud over the Indian Ocean is associated with a middle level disturbance, with patchy high cloud streaming eastwards across the Western Australia coast. Low cloud is seen across the Bight and is trapped under a weak ridge of high pressure. A trough in the Tasman Sea is triggering a band of cloud with embedded thunderstorms, which extends over New Zealand. The remainder of the country is mostly clear.
