IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for 0000UTC Chart on 23 April 2017 Issued at 11:10 am EST Sunday on 23 April 2017 Cloud with isolated thunderstorms moving across the southeast parts of the continent and into the Tasman Sea is due to a combination of surface and upper level troughs. Low cloud is visible over the coasts of VIC and SA and most parts of Tasmania. A weak cold front and cloud band is crossing the southern Tasman Sea. A slow-moving high pressure system over the Tasman Sea is directing southeasterly winds and areas of low cloud with isolated showers onto the northern NSW and QLD coasts. A surface trough is responsible for thunderstorms near the tip of Cape York, with high cloud streaming into the Coral Sea. This trough connects to a low in the Arafura Sea between the Top End and Papua New Guinea, which is causing further thunderstorm activity. Another broad surface trough and low is bringing some cloud and thunderstorm activity to southwest WA. A trough extending from this low through the Bight is causing low cloud.
