IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for 1200UTC Chart on 26 April 2017 Issued at 12:36 am EST Thursday on 27 April 2017 A broad trough extends across eastern Queensland to the Tasman Sea, producing some patch low level cloud across QLD. A band of active thunderstorms are observed to the east of Brisbane, over the Coral Sea. A cold front is moving across northeastern New South Wales, with only patchy low cloud now associated with this feature over land. Meanwhile the pool of cold air behind the front now lies across southern coastal areas of NSW. A broad low pressure over the Tasman Sea has triggered numerous thunderstorms embedded within middle level cloud. A trough and tropical low to the north of the Northern Territory are producing widespread thunderstorms, with some high cloud from these storms being brought down over northern Australia. Isolated thunderstorms over the Gascoyne and Pilbara districts of Western Australia are due to a surface trough, which is also producing middle level cloud. An upper level jetstream is streaming some high level cloud over the remaining southern and interior parts of WA.
