IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for the 1800UTC chart on 9 February 2016 Issued at 5:00 am EDT Wednesday on 10 February 2016 The monsoon trough and a low in the Coral Sea is triggering an extensive area of showers and thunderstorms. A low pressure system near the base of Cape York Peninsula and a trough across the tropical north of the country is generating shower and thunderstorm activity over northern Queensland, northern parts of the NT and the Kimberley region of WA. A high pressure ridge over the south of the continent is maintaining mostly clear conditions across most areas to the south. Patchy low cloud visible near the coastal parts of South Australia, Victoria, NSW, Queensland and Tasmania is associated with a moist southeasterly flow. A cloud band associated with a cold front is moving east over the Southern Ocean, with some high cloud crossing Tasmania ahead of the front.
