IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for 1800UTC Chart 25 February 2017 Issued at 5:43 am EDT Sunday on 26 February 2017 Showers and thunderstorms are active over the Kimberley, Top End and far north Queensland due to a humid unstable airmass. Showers and isolated thunderstorms are also visible about the southern interior of Queensland and the northeastern districts of NSW. This is the reuslt of humid easterly winds feeding into a surface trough combining with an upper level trough. Patchy middle level cloud is evident over the Gasycone and Central West districts of Western Australia. The subtropical ridge is keeping most of southern and central Australia clear. The low cloud along the Victoria and New South Wales coast is due to an onshore southeasterly wind flow directed by the ridge. Further south, a cold front is tracking to the southwest of Western Australia.
