IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for the 0000UTC Chart on 30 September 2016 Issued at 11:15 am EST Friday on 30 September 2016 The cloud band stretching from the Coral Sea through the Tasman Sea and west to Tasmania is associated with the passage of a significant cold front wrapping around a complex low pressure system. This low system is centred about Bass Strait leading to overcast conditions over vast areas of central and southern NSW and Victoria. A deep cold southerly on-shore flow over South Australia has led to a large field of convective cellular cloud over coastal and adjacent inland areas of SA. Cloud over northwest coastal areas of Western Australia is extending from convective activity over the Indian Ocean. The cloud band moving over coastal southwest WA is associated with a weak cold front passing through. The remainder of the continent is mostly clear due to a ridge of high pressure extending from southeast WA through central Australia to Queensland.
