IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for 0000UTC Chart 20 February 2017 Issued at 11:52 am EDT Monday on 20 February 2017 A low pressure trough lies across northern Australia, with an embedded tropical low over the Gulf of Carpentaria. Widespread showers and occasional thunderstorms are developing within the cloud feature near this low. Patchy low to middle level cloud is also present along this broad area of low pressure from northern WA through to northern QLD. A second trough over the Tasman Sea extends south to a low pressure system east of Bass Strait. An extensive cloud band with embedded thunderstorms has been generated by this trough and low pressure system. Middle level cloud over the Gascoyne/Pilbara coast in WA was generated by a low pressure system that has since weakened. Further south, a cold front crossing southwest WA has brought low cloud and isolated thunderstorms to the coast. Low level cloud is also present over southeast Australia affecting southeast SA, TAS and VIC. This is due to an onshore southwesterly airstream directed by the low east of Bass Strait. Isolated thunderstorms are observed over eastern TAS and southern VIC.
