IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for 0000UTC chart 24 January 2017 Issued at 12:13 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, Top End and the Gulf of Carpentaria. Elsewhere a broad area of low pressure extends through the interior of the continent with a surface trough triggering showers and thunderstorms through central parts of WA, southern NT and northern SA. Showers are slowly clearing eastern VIC, southern NSW and northwestern Tasmania as a cold front and middle level cloud band moves into the Tasman Sea. A ridge of high pressure is moving into the Bight, leaving southern WA cloud free.
