IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for the 0000UTC Chart on 29 August 2016 Issued at 11:20 am EST Monday on 29 August 2016 An extensive band of middle and high level cloud can be seen stretching from northern Western Australia, through South Australia, and into the Bight. This cloud is associated with a low pressure system in the Bight, and its associated trough. Colder air behind the trough is producing patchy middle level cloud over central and southern WA, while higher level cloud streaming ahead of the trough is pushing across New South Wales and Victoria. Speckled, cold air cloud can be seen over the Tasman Sea in the wake of a cold front now near New Zealand. Areas of low level cloud are visible along the tropical east coast of Queensland in a moist onshore flow.
