IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for the 1200UTC Chart on 26 August 2016 Issued at 12:33 am EST Saturday on 27 August 2016 An extensive cloud band just off the Queensland east coast extends towards the North Island of New Zealand and is due to a surface trough and associated upper level trough. Patchy middle-level cloud near southeast Queensland is caused by an upper level disturbance. An unstable west/southwesterly flow is bringing patchy low cloud to parts of Tasmania, southern Victoria and South Australia while an area of convective cloud near the northern coast of New South Wales is due to another trough. A strong cold front and its associated cloud band are moving through the southwest of Western Australia and high cloud in advance of this system already covers parts of the Southwest Land Division.
