IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for the 0000UTC chart 29 May 2016 Issued at 11:12 am EST Sunday on 29 May 2016 The embedded thunderstorms off the New South Wales coast are being triggered a low pressure trough over the Tasman Sea. Patchy low level cloud about the coast and ranges in Tasmania, Victoria and New South Wales is due to a cool southwesterly airstream. A cold front is moving across the Great Australian Bight producing a middle level cloud band and isolated thunderstorms near South Australia's coast. Middle to high level cloud can be seen over central Australia and is associated with an upper level disturbance and strong subtropical jetstream. Isolated thunderstorms are also being generated within this feature. Further west, a jetstream is dragging high cloud from over the Indian Ocean towards the west coast of WA. In the far north, low to middle level cloud is beginning to build along a weak trough of low pressure.
