IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for the 0600UTC chart on 13 February 2016 Issued at 6:04 pm EDT Saturday on 13 February 2016 An extensive area of cloud with shower and thunderstorm activity in the Coral Sea is associated with the monsoon trough and tropical Cyclone 'Tatiana'. Middle and high level clouds can be seen streaming to the south from the cyclone. Some low level clouds with isolated thunderstorms can also be seen along the south coast of Queensland due to onshore wind flow. The monsoon trough extends across Cape York Peninsula and the tropical north and is generating shower and thunderstorm activity about the far northern parts of Queensland, the NT and WA. A high pressure ridge over the south of the continent is maintaining mostly clear conditions but onshore winds are causing some low cloud over the southwest parts of WA and the Great Australia Bight. A cold front is moving across Tasmania with mainly low cloud affecting Tasmania and the southeast parts of SA and southwest parts of Victoria. Cloud across the northern and eastern parts of Victoria and to the east of Tasmania is due to a surface trough. A tropical low with associated cloud and thunderstorms is located to the far northwest, near Cocos Island
