IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for 1200UTC Chart 01 March 2017 Issued at 12:20 am EDT Thursday on 02 March 2017 Showers and thunderstorms are evident near the coastal areas of NSW and southeast QLD. A moist easterly airstream is feeding into a surface low pressure trough which is interacting with a complex upper level low to generate this weather. Much of the inland part of the continent is clear but showers and isolated thunderstorms are present across most of the tropical north. Middle level cloud with embedded thunderstorms are also present over the western Kimberley, western Pilbara and Central West Gasycone district of WA, extending into the Southwest Land Division. An upper trough is producing a band of middle and high level cloud streaming across southwest Tasmania.
