IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for 0600UTC Chart on 23 April 2017 Issued at 5:11 pm EST Sunday on 23 April 2017 A weakening upper trough is triggering isolated thunderstorms over soutwestern Queensland, and a cloud band extending into northern NSW. A separate braod upper trough is causing isolated storms off the NSW coast. Low cloud is visible covers Tasmania and coastal Victoria, with high cirrus cloud rapidly moving across Tasmania and the eastern Bight. A weak cold front and cloud band is crossing the southern Tasman Sea. A stronger cold front is crossing the Southern Ocean, but is being prevented from approaching Australia by a high pressure ridge. A slow-moving high pressure system over the Tasman Sea is directing southeasterly winds and areas of low cloud with isolated showers onto the northern NSW and QLD coasts. A surface trough is responsible for thunderstorms near the tip of Cape York, with high cloud streaming into the Coral Sea. This trough connects to a low in the Arafura Sea between the Top End and Papua New Guinea, which is causing further thunderstorm activity. Another broad surface trough and low is causing extensive thunderstorm activity to WA. Mid and high level cloud is streaming southeast away from this activity. A trough extending from the WA low through the Bight is causing low cloud.
