IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for 1800UTC chart 24 January 2017 Issued at 5:00 am EDT Wednesday on 25 January 2017 A humid and unstable air mass combined with an active Monsoon Trough over northern NT with embedded tropical lows enhancing shower and thunderstorm activity across the Kimberley, northern NT, Gulf of Carpentaria and Cape York Peninsula. Elsewhere a broad area of low pressure extends through the interior of the continent with a surface trough triggering showers and thunderstorms embedded within a thick cloud band that stretches from central WA through central Australia across NSW. A ridge of high pressure extends across the Bight to eastern Victoria, leaving southern areas of the continent largely cloud free.
