IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for the 1200UTC Chart on 29 September 2016 Issued at 11:12 pm EST Thursday on 29 September 2016 A strong cold front stretches from southeast Queensland over the Tasman Sea and Tasmania then curving to the significant low pressure system over western Victoria. The low is generating a large cloud mass with isolated thunderstorm activity over most of New South Wales, Victoria, Tasmania, southeast South Australia and The Tasman Sea. A field of convective cellular cloud can be seen in the cold air behind the front over southern South Australia. A broad cloud band with embedded thunderstorms can be seen near a surface trough extending from the Top End to across northern Queensland and along the east coast to southeast Queensland. Western Australia and Central Australia is mostly clear due to a ridge of high pressure extending from the Indian Ocean.
