Issued at 6:39 am EDT Monday on 08 February 2016

A low pressure trough extends from the Kimberley in Western Australia, across
the tropical north to the Coral Sea, triggering showers and thunderstorms off
and near the central coast of Queensland. Isolated thunderstorms can also be
seen over the Cape York Peninsula. 

A low pressure system centred over the Coral Sea has triggered an extensive area
of cloud with embedded thunderstorms.

A high pressure ridge to the south of the continent is maintaining mostly clear
conditions across the rest of Australia.

Operations Notices

  • From 4 Dec 2015 MTSAT data is no longer received via direct broadcast. The Bureau continues to receive MTSAT imagery via FTP, however this has a greater latency. Please use the new high resolution satellite viewer for superior performance.
