IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for 0000UTC Chart 21 February 2017 Issued at 11:45 am EDT Wednesday on 22 February 2017 In the south, a low-pressure system with an associated cold front is approaching the coast of South Australia, bringing some showers. There is a large amount of speckled cloud to the west of this system, indicating the cooler air that is following this system. A trough extends from this cold front through the interior of Western Australia to a low-pressure system in the north-west, where some storms are occuring. Another low pressure trough lies across northern Australia, with the embedded ex-Tropical Cyclone Alfred near the south of the Gulf of Carpentaria. Enhanced shower and thunderstorm activity is still evident near the ex-TC. Low cloud is present along the east coast, especially in northern New South Wales, due to the high pressure system in the Tasman Sea pushing moist oceanic air onto land.
