IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for 0000UTC Monday 05 December 2016 Issued at 12:34 pm EDT Monday on 05 December 2016 A broad area of low pressure covers most of the continent with associated low pressure trough extending across the interior. A cold front is moving over southeast Australia. This instability combined with a warm moist airmass is resulting in middle level cloud with widespread showers and thunderstorms across most of the country including through WA, southern NT, SA, southern QLD, NSW, VIC, and Tasmania. Patchy high level cloud associated with an upper level jet extends over far southern parts of WA and the Bight. A trough and a weak tropical low south of Java are enhancing the shower and thunderstorm activity in the region.
