IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for the 1800UTC chart on 5 May 2015 Issued at 5:00 am EST Wednesday on 06 May 2015 A strong cold front moving into the Tasman Sea and a deep low pressure system south of Tasmania are evident. A surge of cold air behind the front is responsible for a broad area of low cloud along the southern coasts. Patchy high cloud can be seen drifting across the far north of the continent. The remainder of the country is generally clear due to a ridge of high pressure extending from the west into the central interior.
