IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for 1800UTC Chart on 29 March 2017 Issued at 5:00 am EDT Thursday on 30 March 2017 Ex-Tropical Cyclone Debbie is located over inland central Queensland near Emerald and is slowly tracking southwards. Widespread cloud with areas of rain and embedded thunderstorms leading to heavy rainfall, flooding and destructive winds continues to affect central and southern districts of Queensland. High level banded cloud is streaming away from this system over southern Queensland and northern NSW. Elsewhere an active inland trough over far northwest Australia is producing extensive thunderstorm activity from the Northern Territory's Top End to the Pilbara District, WA. The extensive area of middle level cloud that blankets the Pilbara District through to the Southern Interior District is the remnant of the last 24hours of thunderstorm activity. Low cloud is affecting southern coastal WA and coastal SA in a cold southerly airstream that has moved across in the wake of a cold front. The cold front is currently pushing into NSW with isolated showers and thunderstorms occurring along the frontal boundary and in the cold airmass behind the system.
