IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for 1800UTC chart 23 January 2017 Issued at 5:13 am EDT Tuesday on 24 January 2017 A humid and unstable air mass combined with an active Monsoon Trough over northern NT is resulting in extensive shower and thunderstorm activity across the Kimberley, Top End and northern parts of the Gulf of Carpentaria. Elsewhere a broad area of low pressure extends through the interior of the continent with a surface trough triggering extensive areas of active showers and thunderstorms through central parts of WA, southern NT, SA, and NSW with showers slowly starting to clear VIC and TAS with a thick middle level cloud band still extending over southeastern states.
