IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for 0600UTC Chart on 27 April 2017 Issued at 5:00 pm EST Thursday on 27 April 2017 A trough extends along coastal Queensland to a low over the Tasman Sea, producing some patchy low level cloud near the QLD coast. A cold front has just moved off the New South Wales coast, with only patchy low cloud now associated with this feature over land. The cold front stretches to a broad low pressure centre over the Tasman Sea, with isolated thunderstorms embedded within middle level cloud observed. Low level cloud can also be seen along the coast of South Australia, Victoria and Tasmania due to an onshore wind flow. A tropical low to the northwest of the Northern Territory is producing widespread thunderstorms, with some high cloud from these storms streaming down over northern Australia. A middle level trough over Gascoyne district of WA extends over southern WA producing middle level cloud within the vicinity. An upper level jetstream is acting to pull some high level cloud over interior of WA.
