IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for the 0000UTC chart on 2 August 2015 Issued at 11:37 am EST Sunday on 02 August 2015 A band of middle to high level cloud lies over eastern Victoria and New South Wales and extends into the Tasman Sea. This cloud is due to a low pressure trough. A strong cold front lies to the southwest of Tasmania, with its associated cloud band currently crossing the southwest coast. A significant pool of cold air lies over the Southern Ocean behind this front. Patchy low cloud over the Queensland's east coast is the result of moist southeasterly trade wind flow. An area of low cloud can be seen over southwestern Western Australia and the Indian Ocean, and is due to moisture trapped under a high pressure ridge. The remainder of the country is mostly clear.
