IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for 1800UTC Chart 23 February 2017 Issued at 5:00 am EDT Friday on 24 February 2017 A trough extends across northern Australia producing isolated showers and storms over the Kimberley region of Western Australia, the Northern Territory's Top End extending down across southeastern parts, then through northern and central QLD. Coastal showers and thunderstorms along the Queensland coast are due to a high pressure system in the Tasman Sea pushing moist ocean air onto land. Low level moisture trapped under a ridge of high pressure that extends over southern parts of the country is responsible for the low level cloud that blankets the Great Australian Bight and coastal regions of South Australia, Victoria and Tasmania.
