IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for 0600UTC Friday 10 December 2016 Issued at 5:18 pm EDT Saturday on 10 December 2016 Afternoon land heating combines with a surface trough to generate thunderstorm activity over the Gascoyne and the Goldfields districts of WA and about the Capricornia coast and adjoining central inland regions of Queensland. Further north, isolated thunderstorm activity visible across the tropical parts of the continent is associated with a trough. Mid level cloud band moving across Tasmania is associated with a cold front. A high pressure ridge is keeping the remainder of the continent mainly cloud free.
