IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for the 1800UTC Chart on 26 August 2016 Issued at 6:28 am EST Saturday on 27 August 2016 An extensive cloud band extends over the Coral Sea towards the North Island of New Zealand and is due to a surface trough and associated upper level trough. Patchy middle-level cloud near southeast Queensland is caused by an upper level disturbance. An unstable west/southwesterly flow is bringing patchy low cloud to parts of Tasmania, southern Victoria and South Australia. A strong cold front and its associated cloud band are moving through the southwest of Western Australia and high-level cloud streams ahead of this system to extend across the south of Western Australia.
