IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for the 1200UTC chart on 01 December 2015 Issued at 11:11 pm EDT Tuesday on 01 December 2015 Isolated convective clouds are evident over northern half of Western Australia, Northern Territory, Gulf of Carpentaria, these clouds cover a more broad area over Queensland and northeast New South Wales resulting in thunderstorm activity in a complex, broad low pressure area. Middle level cloud extends from QLD over NSW and east Victoria ahead of an upper level trough. A cloud band ahead of a cold front can be seen over Tasmania, extending over parts of Victoria and central NSW. The southern half of WA and most parts of SA are clear due to a ridge of high pressure extending over these areas with low level cloud further south extending across the Bight in the wake of the cold front.
