IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for 0600UTC Chart 21 February 2017 Issued at 6:03 pm EDT Tuesday on 21 February 2017 A low pressure trough lies across northern Australia, with the embedded EX-Tropical Cyclone Alfred over the Gulf of Carpentaria. Enhanced showers and thunderstorm activity is still evident near the ex-TC, mostly over northern QLD. Middle level cloud from the outflow of ex-TC Alfred is also present over most of central QLD. Higher based cloud can be seen streaming over southeast Queensland, brought along by an upper level jet stream. In the west, a series of cold fronts over southern WA has produced scattered showers and thunderstorms near their vicinity. The cloud band over the Eucla district is mostly due to the passage of the prefrontal trough. Low level cloud present over western Tasmania and Gippsland in Victoria is directed by a dry southwesterly airstream.
