IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for the 0600UTC chart on 07 July 2015 Issued at 5:00 pm EST Tuesday on 07 July 2015 A weakening low pressure trough along the Victorian coast is bringing areas of cloud across the state and through Bass Strait. This trough extends through southeast NSW and connects to a cold front moving up the central NSW coast. Patchy low cloud over Tasmania lies within the southeasterly airflow to the south of the trough. Moist onshore winds are resulting in areas of low cloud about southern parts of South Australia, while a cold front is moving across the far southwest of Western Australia. Low cloud in advance of this system covers parts of the Southwest Land Division. Further north, southeasterly trade winds are generating areas of low cloud off the east Queensland coast. Areas of low and middle level cloud are also evident about parts of the Kimberley coast and western Gulf of Carpentaria. The remainder of Australia is mostly clear due to a broad ridge of high pressure through the interior of the country.
