IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for 1200UTC Chart on 30 March 2017 Issued at 11:05 pm EDT Thursday on 30 March 2017 Ex-Tropical Cyclone Debbie is located over inland central Queensland near Kingaroy and is slowly tracking southeastwards. Widespread cloud with areas of heavy rain and embedded thunderstorms leading to heavy rainfall, flooding and destructive winds continues to affect central and southern districts of Queensland and northeastern NSW. A thick middle to upper level cloud band streams out away from the low across the Tasman Sea stretching south of New Zealand. A trough extnds across the WA Kimberley coast, across the base of the NT's Top End and connets through Queensland to Ex-Tropical Cyclone Debbie. Thunderstorms are being triggered along the trough across northern Australia. Low cloud extends along coastal areas of SA and across southern Victoria and Tasmania in a cold southerly airstream that has moved across the region in the wake of a cold front. The cold front is currently moving further into the Tasman Sea with isolated showers and thunderstorms occurring along the frontal boundary. Another strong cold front is currently moving through southern Bight waters approaching Tasmania. Apart from an extensive area of middle level cloud over central WA, which is the remnant of the last 24 hours of thunderstorm activity, the interior of the continent is largely cloud-free under a ridge of high pressure.
