IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for 1800UTC Chart on 24 March 2017 Issued at 6:04 am EDT Saturday on 25 March 2017 Tropical Cyclone Caleb is currently situated to the southwest of Indonesia in the Indian Ocean. TC Caleb is part of an active monsoon trough which is producing extensive areas of thunderstorm activity across the north and northwest of the country. Another low is located off the Kimberley coast of WA. A surface trough extends from a low pressure system over the eastern Gascoyne district down into the Bight. This trough is producing an extensive area of middle to high-level cloud extending on to coastal SA, Vic and Tasmania. A tropical low pressure system in the Coral Sea is producing an impressive mass of cloud with embedded thunderstorm activity. This low is expected to intensify and become a tropical cyclone. The central and eastern interior of the continent remains relatively cloud free under a ridge of high pressure.
