IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for 0600UTC chart 22 January 2017 Issued at 6:38 pm EDT Sunday on 22 January 2017 A broad area of low pressure persist over the western and northern parts of the continent. A series of surface troughs are triggering showers and thunderstorms over the interior. A humid and unstable air mass is resulting in the thunderstorm activity across the Top End and near the Gulf of Carpentaria. High pressure is maintaining clear skies across the southeast of the country. Patchy high cloud is evident about the coast of South Australia while southwesterly 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.
