IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for the 1200UTC chart on 6 March 2015 Issued at 11:48 pm EDT Friday on 06 March 2015 Showers and thunderstorms are active across the north of the country due to humid winds feeding into a low pressure trough. Areas of showers and thunderstorms are evident over the northern Coral Sea due to a monsoon trough with two embedded tropical lows. Cloud is streaming from the Pilbara region across southern Western Australia to South Australia. An established upper level trough and jet stream is generating this extensive cloud band. Further south, a cold front off the NSW coast connects to a very intense low pressure system over the southern Tasman Sea. Southerly winds behind the front are resulting in areas of low cloud about the southeast coast of the mainland and also over Tasmania. Another frontal system is tracking across the Southern Ocean.
