IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for 1200UTC Chart 19 February 2017 Issued at 12:09 am EDT Monday on 20 February 2017 A low pressure trough lies across northern Australia, with an embedded tropical low near the Gulf of Carpentaria coast. Scattered thunderstorms are embedded within middle level cloud in the vicinity of the trough. A second trough extends from Northern Territory, across southeast Queensland and into the Tasman Sea, ahead of another trough moving across Tasmania and the southeast of the country. Extensive middle level cloud with embedded thunderstorms can be seen in the vicinity of these troughs. Thunderstorms can also be seen near a weak tropical low off the northwest coast of Western Australia with some middle level cloud affecting the Gascoyne and Pilbara districts of Western Australia. Low level cloud affecting Tasmania and Victoria, as well as coastal South Australia is due to an onshore southwesterly wind flow and a low pressure system over Tasmania. A few thunderstorms are visible over Tasmania and southern Victoria around the low.
