IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for 0600UTC Chart 20 February 2017 Issued at 5:39 pm EDT Monday on 20 February 2017 A low pressure trough lies across northern Australia, with the embedded Tropical Cyclone Alfred over the Gulf of Carpentaria. Widespread showers and occasional thunderstorms are evident surrounding the TV. Patchy low to middle level cloud with embedded thunderstorms are also present along this broad area of low pressure from northern WA through to northern QLD. A second trough over the Tasman Sea extends south to a low pressure system east of Tasmania. An extensive cloud band with embedded thunderstorms has been generated by this trough and low pressure system. In the west, a third surface trough of low pressure over southwest WA is producing scattered showers and thunderstorm near its vicinity. Low cloud is also evident over the southwest coast due to the passage of a nearby offshore cold front. Low level cloud is also present over much of Victoria directed by a dry southwesterly airstream. Isolated thunderstorms are observed over eastern TAS and southern VIC.
