IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre 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.
