IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for the 0000UTC chart 28 May 2016 Issued at 11:16 am EST Saturday on 28 May 2016 A low pressure system over the Tasman Sea links, via a trough, to a complex low pressure system over southeast Australia, producing extensive cloud and offshore thunderstorms. This cloud band extends to the east and south of Tasmania, wrapping around another low pressure system. High based cloud can be seen over central Australia due to an upper level trough. This cloud is also observed streaming across Queensland captured by the subtropical jet stream. In the southwest, the cloud band crossing southern WA is associated with a cold front crossing WA today. Further east, a high pressure system over southwest SA is directing an onshore flow over SA and western Victoria leading to patchy low cloud.
