IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for 1800UTC chart 16 January 2017 Issued at 6:01 am EDT Tuesday on 17 January 2017 A trough extending from northwest Western Australia, through southern WA and into the Bight is causing a band of cloud with embedded thunderstorms through much of WA, extending across the bight to Tasmania. Extensive areas of cloud and embedded thunderstorms also lie across large areas of northern WA, Northern Territory and Queensland. A high pressure system in the Tasman Sea is maintaining mostly clear conditions across Victoria, South Australia and New South Wales. A cold front moving across the Bight is producing a band of high and middle level cloud, mainly over ocean. The cold air to the west of this front is producing large areas of speckled cloud.
