IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for 1800UTC Chart 26 February 2017 Issued at 6:00 am EDT Monday on 27 February 2017 Widespread showers and isolated thunderstorms are visible on the coast between Port Stephens (NSW) and Fraser Island (QLD). A low pressure trough just offshore combining with a slow moving upper trough is generating this weather. Patchy cloud and showers are evident further north along the Queensland coast due to onshore winds. Humid and unsettled conditions persist over the north of the country with thunderstorms currently active about the Joseph Bonapart Gulf and eastern Pilbara. Low pressure troughs through Queensland and inland from the west coast of Western Australia are resulting in patchy cloud some of which is the remnants from yesterday's thunderstorm activity. The subtropical ridge is keeping most of southern and central Australia clear. An upper trough is producing cloud to the south of Western Australia with cold fronts tracking further south across the Southern Ocean in a westerly airstream.
