IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for 1800UTC Chart 22 February 2017 Issued at 5:00 am EDT Thursday on 23 February 2017 In the south, a low pressure system with an associated cold front is moving across Tasmania with a thick middle level cloud band over the region associated with the system. A trough extends across northern Australia producing showers and storms over the Kimberley region of WA, northeastern parts of the NT and northern QLD. Some mid level cloud produced by these storms sweeps across Queensland. Low level moisture trapped under a ridge of high pressure that extends over southern parts of the country is responsible for the low level cloud that blankets the Great Australian Bight and coastal regions of southern WA, SA and western VIC.
