IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for the 1800UTC Chart on 27 September 2016 Issued at 5:46 am EST Wednesday on 28 September 2016 A strong cold front and rapidly intensifying low pressure system are crossing the Bight generating a large cloud band with embedded thunderstorm activity. A field of convective cellular cloud can be seen in the cold air behind the front. An upper level cloud band is streaming down from tropical convection over Indonesia to central Australia. This cloud is brought along by the upper level subtropical jet stream. While a weak cold front is crossing Tasmania resulting in some patchy low level cloud over the state, which extends down to a low over the Southern Ocean.
