IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for 1800UTC Chart on 23 April 2017 Issued at 6:21 am EST Monday on 24 April 2017 Weakening surface and upper level troughs are causing mostly middle level cloud over NSW and far southern parts of QLD. A surface trough over northern WA is responsible for the thunderstorm activity around that area. A broad upper trough over the southwest parts of WA is causing an extensive area of cloud over WA, through SA, southern VIC and Tasmania. Isolated thunderstorms can be seen within this cloud band mostly over WA and the western parts of SA. A slow-moving high pressure system over the Tasman Sea is directing southeasterly winds and areas of low cloud onto the QLD coasts. A surface trough and low pressure system are responsible for thunderstorms over the far northern parts of the country.
