IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for the 0000UTC chart on 02 February 2015 Issued at 11:56 am EDT Monday on 02 February 2015 Areas of middle level cloud with embedded thunderstorms cover parts of Western Australia. This cloud is due to a surface trough which extends from the Gascoyne region of Western Australia to the Northern Territory and also a slow-moving low just off the WA west coast. Isolated thunderstorms can be seen about parts of Tropical North Queensland and the Gulf Country and also near the east coast of New South Wales to the east of another inland trough. Severe tropical cyclone Ola remains well to the east of Queensland in the Coral Sea. Patchy low cloud about Tasmania, southern Victoria and coastal areas of South Australia lies within a moist southerly airflow to the east of a slow-moving high pressure system.
