IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for the 0600UTC chart on 3 June 2015 Issued at 5:32 pm EST Wednesday on 03 June 2015 Areas of mostly low cloud can be seen just off the NSW coast embedded within a southerly airstream well to the west of a deep low near New Zealand, with low level cloud also persisting over large parts of Victoria. High level cloud extends from central Australia to cover much of southern Queensland and northeast NSW. This cloud is associated with an upper level disturbance. Patchy middle level cloud over South Australia is due to a surface trough. A cold front and its associated cloud band is moving to the south of the Great Australian Bight, while another is crossing the southwest of WA.
