IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for the 0600UTC chart 29 May 2016 Issued at 5:00 pm EST Sunday on 29 May 2016 Thunderstorms are evident over the western Tasman Sea near a trough of low pressure. Patchy low level cloud about the coast and ranges in Tasmania, Victoria and inland New South Wales is due to a cool southwesterly airstream. Likewise, a strong southerly onshore flow has brought low cloud over much of coastal and inland southern and southwest WA. A cold front moving across the Great Australian Bight is producing a middle level cloud band and thunderstorms near South Australia's coast. Patchy remnants of this cloud band extends north along a pre-frontal trough near Coober Pedy and is also generating isolated thunderstorms. Middle to high level cloud with embedded thunderstorms can be seen near Giles and is associated with an upper level disturbance. Further west, a jetstream is pulling high cloud from over the Indian Ocean towards the west coast of WA. In the north, a field of cumuliform cloud has developed as a result of the afternoon heat and low level moisture.
