Satellite Notes for 1200UTC chart 23 January 2017
Issued at 11:20 pm EDT Monday on 23 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 exists over the interior of the continent
with a series of surface troughs triggering extensive areas of active showers
and thunderstorms through northern parts of WA, the NT, SA, VIC and southern
parts of NSW. 

The high pressure over the Tasman Sea is moving further east as an inland trough
moves across southeastern Australia. Hot northerly winds associated with the
combination of these two systems will increase temperatures through NSW and QLD
during the next 24hours.
