IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for the 1800UTC chart on 29 May 2015 Issued at 6:38 am EST Saturday on 30 May 2015 A broad, slow moving cloud band extends from the Pilbara region of WA through northern parts of South Australia and NSW. This cloud is due to an upper level trough. A cold front has moved off the NSW coast into the Tasman sea. Another cold front is moving towards Tasmania. Cloud associated with this front is moving on to Tasmania. Low level cloud also covers parts of south coast of Australia due to a moist onshore airstream. Convective cloud band over the north coast of the Top End is associated with a weak trough and an easterly surge over the Arafura Sea.
