IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for 0600UTC Chart 19 February 2017 Issued at 5:31 pm EDT Sunday on 19 February 2017 A low pressure trough lies across northern Australia, with an embedded tropical low near the Gulf of Carpentaria coast. Scattered thunderstorms are embedded within middle level cloud in the vicinity of the trough. A second trough extends through the interior of Queensland, across northeastern New South Wales and into the Tasman Sea, ahead of a cold front. Middle level cloud with embedded thunderstorms can be seen in the vicinity of the trough. Thunderstorms can also be seen near a weak tropical low off the northwest coast of Western Australia with some middle level cloud affecting the Gascoyne and Pilbara districts of Western Australia. Low level cloud affecting Tasmania and Victoria, as well as coastal South Australia is due to onshore southwesterly wind flow and a low pressure system near Tasmania. A few thunderstorms are visible over Tasmania and southern Victoria around the low.
