IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for the 1800UTC chart on 25 April 2015 Issued at 6:10 am EST Sunday on 26 April 2015 A low pressure system is centred just off the central New South Wales coast with associated active band of cloud with embedded thunderstorms. To the west of this system areas of low cloud can be seen about the south coast of South Australia and Victoria within a moist southerly onshore flow. An area of isolated thunderstorms just off the Kimberley coast is associated with a weak slow moving low pressure system. A broad area of low pressure over the Tasman Sea is producing an area of mainly middle level cloud and thunderstorms. The southwestern, central and northeastern parts of the country are mainly cloud free under the influence of a strong ridge of high pressure.
