IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for 0000UTC Chart 28 February 2017 Issued at 11:11 am EDT Tuesday on 28 February 2017 Widespread showers and thunderstorms are evident over the northeast NSW and southeast QLD coast. This convective activity is produced by a high pressure system over the south Tasman Sea directing a moist easterly flow into an offshore surface low pressure trough that is further enhanced by an upper level trough. Further south, where the surface trough is less prominent, the moist onshore flow has led to patchy low cloud conditions for coastal southeast Australia. Yesterday evening's thunderstorm activity over the Gascoyne and Pilbara region has generated extensive middle level cloud over the region. The patchy cloud bands over southern WA are formed by the passage of a low pressure trough. In the north, humid conditions combined with a broad area of low pressure over northern Australia has primed the area for further convective activity this afternoon. Elsewhere, the subtropical ridge of high pressure is keeping most of southern and central Australia clear.
