IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for 1200UTC chart 24 January 2017 Issued at 11:23 pm EDT Tuesday on 24 January 2017 A humid and unstable air mass combined with an active Monsoon Trough over northern NT is resulting in extensive shower and thunderstorm activity across the Kimberley, the NT, Gulf of Carpentaria and western Queensland. A heat low over the Pilbara is also causing extensive thunderstorm activity. Elsewhere a broad area of low pressure extends through the interior of the continent with a surface trough triggering showers and thunderstorms across southern parts of the NT, northern SA through NSW and southern QLD. A ridge of high pressure extends across the Bight to eastern Victoria, leaving southern areas of the continent largely cloud free. Cloud can be seen over southwest Tasmania in a vigorous westerly airstream.
