IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for the 0000UTC Chart on 29 September 2016 Issued at 11:31 am EST Thursday on 29 September 2016 A strong cold front is now located over central New South Wales and Victoria and extends to the significant low pressure system over southeast South Australia. This is generating a large cloud band and thunderstorm activity over most of New South Wales, Victoria, Tasmania and southern South Australia. A field of convective cellular cloud can be seen in the cold air behind the front over far south South Australia and Western Australia. Low level cloud along the southern WA coast is due to an onshore southerly flow. A surface trough extending from the Top End to central Queensland is generating an extensive cloud band over Queensland with isolated thunderstorms.
