IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for the 0600UTC chart on 31 January 2015 Issued at 6:51 pm EDT Saturday on 31 January 2015 A broad area of cloud with embedded thunderstorms covers large parts of Western Australia and extends into the Top End and western parts of the Northerrn Territory. This cloud is associated with an inland trough which stretches from central WA across Northern Territory, inland Queensland and over northeast New South Wales. Isolated thunderstorms can be seen along the trough over Queensland and New South Wales. Isolated thunderstorms over the north tropical coast of Queensland is due to another trough originating from Tropical cyclone OLA located well to the east in the Coral Sea. Areas of cloud wrapping around a deep, slow-moving low pressure system in the Tasman Sea cover parts of Tasmania, eastern Victoria and the far southeast of New South Wales. The remainder of Australia is mostly cloud free.
