IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for the 0000UTC chart on 31 March 2015 Issued at 12:00 pm EDT Tuesday on 31 March 2015 An extensive area of middle level cloud with isolated embedded thunderstorms lies over much of Western Australia, and is primarily caused by an upper level disturbance and surface trough. Some wispy high cloud can be seen approaching western Tasmania, after being pulled southwards by the upper level jet stream. Another surface trough is generating thunderstorms embedded in middle level cloud over eastern New South Wales and southeastern Queensland. Patches of low cloud are persisting along the remaining QLD east coast in a moist southeasterly trade flow off the Coral Sea. The remaining central areas of the country is cloud free under the influence of a high pressure ridge.
