IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for the 0600UTC Chart on 27 August 2016 Issued at 5:07 pm EST Saturday on 27 August 2016 An extensive cloud band extends over the Coral Sea towards the North Island of New Zealand and is due to a surface trough and associated upper level trough. A weak low pressure system off the northern NSW coast is responsible for a large area of thunderstorm activity around Lord Howe Island and some low level cloud about the NSW coast. A low pressure system and associated cold front is passing through southwest WA with high level cloud streaming ahead of an extensive cloud band. A second cold front passing through the Southern Ocean is responsible for the cloud band influencing southern SA, VIC and TAS.
