IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for 1800UTC chart 21 January 2017 Issued at 6:27 am EDT Sunday on 22 January 2017 Showers and thunderstorms are visible along a surface trough through the interior of Western Australia. Another surface trough is generating showers and thunderstorms through central Australia and southern Queensland. A humid unstable air mass is resulting in the thunderstorm activity over the Top End and Peninsula district of Queensland. High pressure is maintaining clear skies across the southeast of the country although a little cloud is evident about coastal NSW and Tasmania due to onshore winds. Patchy cloud is evident over the Bight while southerly winds a producing low cloud about the far southwest of Western Australia. Further east, a band of cloud is evident over the southern Coral Sea which extends further southeast over New Zealand. This is associated with a significant upper level trough and intense low pressure system near the south island of New Zealand.
