IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for the 1200UTC Chart on 27 October 2016 Issued at 11:00 pm EDT Thursday on 27 October 2016 Thunderstorms over northeast New South Wales and southeast Queensland are associated with a surface trough. A broad area of low pressure over northern Australia combined with low level moisture is triggering isolated thunderstorms over the Top End. Middle level cloud through central WA is streaming down from a tropical low over the Indian Ocean and extends across the Pilbara, Gascoyne and Interior districts of Western Australia. The remainder of the country is relatively cloud free with a ridge of high pressure extending over southeast Australia.
