IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for the 0000UTC chart on 30 April 2016 Issued at 12:14 pm EST Saturday on 30 April 2016 A ridge of high pressure extends along the Queensland coast and is associated with a high in the Tasman Sea. This system is maintaining a moist onshore airstream and is generating patchy low cloud over eastern districts of Queensland. A cloud band is streaming through the interior of the country and extends across NSW to the Tasman Sea. This is associated with an upper level jet stream and continues to produce showers through NSW. Further south a cold front is moving across the Great Australian Bight. This front extends further south to connect with an intense low and a pool of cold air over the Southern Ocean. A trough and a cold front in the Tasman Sea is causing a large area of mid to high level cloud. Mostly clear across the remainder of Australia apart from some convective cloud about the northern Gulf of Carpentaria and Cape York Peninsula.
