IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for 1200UTC Chart 28 February 2017 Issued at 12:21 am EDT Wednesday on 01 March 2017 Showers and isolated thunderstorms are evident over the coast and ranges of NSW between Sydney and Tweed Heads with further activity visible off the coast. A moist easterly airstream is feeding into a surface low pressure trough which interacting with a complex upper level trough to generate this weather. Onshore winds are producing patchy low cloud along the remainder of the NSW and Queensland coast. A humid airmass and broad area of low pressure persists over northern Australia. Showers and thunderstorms are active over Cape York Peninsula, the Top End and through northern districts of Western Australia. Middle level cloud with embedded storms is occurring over the Pilbara, Central West and Gasycone districts. Southern Australia is dominated by the subtropical high pressure ridge which is resulting in mostly clear conditions. An upper trough is producing a band of middle and high level cloud streaming across the Bight to the south of Tasmania. Some high is also drifting to the south of Western Australia.
