IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for the 0600UTC Chart on 27 July 2016 Issued at 5:00 pm EST Wednesday on 27 July 2016 Low cloud can be seen in the wake of a weakening frontal system progressing through the Tasman Sea. This cloud covers areas of SA, VIC, TAS and southern NSW. A second front and associated cloud band has begun passing over TAS with some thunderstorm activity evident to the south of the state. Further to the north, a cloud band extends from central Queensland into the Tasman Sea. This is associated with an upper trough. Patchy low cloud remains about southern coastal areas of Western Australia while another upper trough is responsible for the extensive cloud band extending into the southwest of the state.
