IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for the 06000UTC chart on 4 May 2015 Issued at 5:22 pm EST Monday on 04 May 2015 A strong cold front is impacting southern Western Australia with a surge of cold air behind it causing isolated thunderstorms along the coast. This front connects to an intensify low south of the Bight. Patchy cloud ahead of the front lies along a trough extending from northern Western Australia to the Bight. A weakening Low is now located far off the NSW coast. Cloud and thunderstorms are visible along the trough from this low over the Tasman Sea while another trough over the Coral Sea is generating an area of shower and thunderstorm activity. Patchy low cloud extends over the central NSW coast. The remainder of the country is generally clear due to a ridge of high pressure from the southeast to the northern interior.
