IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for 1200UTC Chart 26 February 2017 Issued at 12:01 am EDT Monday on 27 February 2017 Thunderstorm activity is occuring across northern parts of the country due to a humid unstable airmass. Surface troughs through Queensland and inland from Western Australia's west coast are also triggering thunderstorms. Another trough is visible off the NSW coast which is producing showers and thunderstorms. The subtropical ridge is keeping most of southern and central Australia clear. Low cloud along the New South Wales and Queensland coast is due to an onshore southeasterly wind flow directed by the ridge. 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.
