IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for 0600UTC Chart 25 February 2017 Issued at 6:02 pm EDT Saturday on 25 February 2017 The subtropical ridge is keeping southern and central Australia largely cloud free. The low cloud along the Victoria and New South Wales coast is due to an onshore southeasterly wind flow directed by the ridge. A surface trough over Queensland extending over New South Wales has produced thundertsorms within the vicinity. Further north, isolated thunderstorms have developed over the Cape York Peninsula, Top End and northern Western Australia in a moist air mass.
