IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for the 0000UTC chart on 04 May 2016 Issued at 11:00 am EST Wednesday on 04 May 2016 Middle to high level cloud streaming across the northern and eastern parts of the continent is associated with an upper level trough and a jetstream. Thunderstorms are evident near a surface trough over coastal southeast Queensland. Likewise, a surface trough of low pressure has generated thunderstorms over western WA. Patchy low level cloud over southeast Australia is due to the passage of a cold front. In the west, onshore winds have brought low cloud about the southwest coast of Western Australia. While the high cloud streaming across the Pilbara and Gascoyne districts of Western Australia is associated with a jetstream.
