IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for 1200UTC chart 22 January 2017 Issued at 12:16 am EDT Monday on 23 January 2017 A humid and unstable air mass is resulting in extensive shower and thunderstorm activity across the Top End and about the Gulf of Carpentaria. A broad area of low pressure exists over the inteior of the continent with a series of surface troughs triggering showers and thunderstorms. The main thunderstorm activity is visible through western Queensland, central Australia and western districts of South Australia. High pressure is maintaining clear skies across the southeast of the country. Patchy high cloud is evident about the coast of South Australia and western Victoria while southerly winds are bringing patchy low cloud to the far southwest of Western Australia. Further east, a band of cloud is evident over the Coral Sea which extends further southeast. This is associated with a surface trough connected to an intense low pressure system near the south island of New Zealand.
