IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for the 1200UTC chart on 25 November 2015 Issued at 11:06 pm EDT Wednesday on 25 November 2015 A broad area of low pressure over northern Australia has led to extensive areas of low to middle level cloud with embedded thunderstorms over central and northern Western Australia, the NT, west Queensland and northwest South Australia. High cloud from this system, generated with the thunderstorms, is evident over central Australia. Low cloud can be seen over the south coast of WA in a moist southerly airstream directed by a ridge of high pressure. A trough of low pressure over southeast Austrlaia combined with an upper level jet stream has produced the cloud band over Victoria and Tasmania. Thunderstorms are also observed in this cloud band. A secondary driver of the cloud band in southeast Australia is a fast moving cold front over the Bight towards Tasmania. A large area of cold unstable air behind the front is represented by the speckled convective cloud on the satellite image.
