IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for 0000UTC Saturday 11 December 2016 Issued at 12:24 pm EDT Sunday on 11 December 2016 Cloud and thunderstorms are visible over northern Australia, associated with surface troughs. The cloud is more extensive over northern WA and waters to the north, the Gulf of Carpentaria, and eastern and central Queensland. Patchy middle level cloud has also formed along western parts of southern WA, near a trough. Cloud over the southern Indian Ocean, extending to the west coast of WA, is due to and upper trough and an approaching cold front. A cold front can be seen moving across the Tasman sea. Onshore wind flow behind the cold front is causing low cloud over southern Victoria, eastern New South Wales and Tasmania. A high pressure ridge is keeping the remainder of the continent mainly cloud free.
