Satellite Notes for 1800UTC Monday 05 December 2016
Issued at 6:28 am EDT Tuesday on 06 December 2016

A broad area of low pressure covers most of northern and eastern Australia,
with. A trough extends from northwest WA, through the interior of the NT and
southwest QLD to northeast NSW. The trough then extends further through the
Tasman Sea towards New Zealand. The instability associated with the trough
combined with a warm moist airmass is resulting in middle level cloud with
widespread showers and thunderstorms across most of the country including
through northern WA, southern NT, SA, southern QLD, NSW and VIC.

Regions of QLD and the NT northeast of the trough are mainly hot and dry with
clear skies although a concentrated area of thunderstorms has formed over
southeast QLD and northeast NSW.

A trough and a weak tropical low south of Java are enhancing the shower and
thunderstorm activity in the region.
