IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for 1800UTC Chart 01 March 2017 Issued at 6:15 am EDT Thursday on 02 March 2017 An area of middle level cloud with embedded thunderstorms covers much of the coastal region of NSW and the tropical part of Queensland. Low level cloud generated by a moist easterly airstream also covers the coastal regions of NSW, eastern Victoria and coastal regions of Queensland. Much of the inland part of the continent is clear but showers and isolated thunderstorms are present across most of the tropical north. Middle level cloud with embedded thunderstorms are also present over the western Kimberley, western Pilbara and Central West Gasycone district of WA, extending into the Southwest Land Division. A weak trough across western Victoria and Tasmania is generating areas of low level cloud along the southern coast of Victoria and Tasmania.
