IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for the 1200UTC chart on 28 July 2015 Issued at 12:18 am EST Wednesday on 29 July 2015 The patchy middle-level cloud band over the Coral Sea is associated with an upper trough and the jet stream. A thick rain band is evident over southern WA with high-level cloud streaming ahead of this system across the Bight. A high pressure system near western New South Wales is directing a moist onshore airflow over the southeast of Australia and the Queensland coast, leading to areas of patchy low cloud. The rest of the country is mostly clear due to the high pressure system.
