IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for the 0600UTC chart on 28 August 2015 Issued at 5:29 pm EST Friday on 28 August 2015 A middle level disturbance over northern WA has generated an area of middle to upper level cloud over the NT and western Queensland. Embedded thunderstorms are evident on the western flank of this cloud mass and can be attributed to a series of low pressure troughs in the area. Likewise, this broad area of low pressure is responsible for convective cloud field over northern and central WA. A moist southerly onshore over southeast Australia has produced areas of low cloud. Convective clouds are also observed in the cold air behind a weakening cold front east of Tasmania. In the west, patchy cloud and storms can be seen along a weakening cold front over southwest WA.
