IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for the 0600UTC Chart on 29 July 2016 Issued at 5:00 pm EST Friday on 29 July 2016 A high pressure system located over southeast Australia extends a ridge across the country. Clear skies are evident across the eastern and northern interior of Australia. Southeasterly winds are bringing patches of low cloud along the Queensland coast while an upper trough is responsible for the cloud streaming from north Queensland across the Coral Sea. Further south, low cloud is visible over southern parts of South Australia, Victoria and parts of New South Wales due to a westerly airstream. A cold front embedded in the westerly airstream is over Tasmania. Middle to high level cloud extends over southern districts of Western Australia and the Bight while a strong cold front is visible to the southwest of Western Australia.
