IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for the 1800UTC chart 28 May 2016 Issued at 5:33 am EST Sunday on 29 May 2016 The embedded thunderstorms off the New South Wales coast are being triggered a low pressure trough over the Tasman Sea. While patchy low cloud near the coast and ranges in Tasmania, Victoria and New South Wales is due to the cool southwesterly airstream. A cold front is moving across the Great Australian Bight producing a middle level cloud band and isolated thunderstorms near the Nullarbor coast. High cloud can be seen over central Australia with a strong subtropical jetstream. A jetstream is also bringing high cloud from over the Indian Ocean towards the west coast of WA.
