IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for the 0000UTC chart on 30 May 2015 Issued at 11:54 am EST Saturday on 30 May 2015 A broad, slow moving cloud band extends from the central interior of Western Australia through northern parts of South Australia and across New South Wales. This cloud is due to an upper level trough. A cold front is approaching the west coast of Tasmania, with a band of cloud associated with this system extending across the western half of the state. The cold air behind the front is represented by the spotty cloud to the southwest of Tasmania. Patchy low level cloud lies over parts of the SA coast and also about the tropical Queensland coast due to a moist onshore airstream. An area of convective cloud over the north coast of the Top End is associated with a weak trough and an easterly surge over the Arafura Sea.
