IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for 0000UTC Chart on 23 March 2017 Issued at 11:42 am EDT Thursday on 23 March 2017 Moisture is feeding down from a tropical low pressure system to the southeast of Papua New Guinea. This moisture is forming an extensive mass of cloud extending from the Coral Sea into the Tasman Sea. An active monsoon trough south of Indonesia has triggered extensive areas of thunderstorm activity with several embedded tropical lows. A surface trough connects a low off the Pilbara coast to another off the south coast of Western Australia. These systems are creating an extensive cloud band over the interior of Western Australia and into the Bight. The central and eastern interior of the continent is mostly cloud free under a ridge of high pressure extending from a high to the southwest of Tasmania.
