IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for 0000UTC chart 21 January 2017 Issued at 11:54 am EDT Saturday on 21 January 2017 A surface trough extends from the Pilbara district of Western Australia through northern parts of South Australia and northeast parts of New South Wales to a deepening low pressure system over the Tasman Sea. Thunderstorms can be seen in the vicinity of the trough. A moist north to northwest windflow covers a broad area to the north of the trough, triggering thunderstorms over the Top End in the Northern Territory and the Gulf of Carpentaria. Low level cloud ahead of a weakening cold front can be seen crossing Tasmania. A large high pressure system in the Bight is keeping the southern half of the continent largely cloud free.
