IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for 0600UTC chart 21 January 2017 Issued at 6:06 pm EDT Saturday on 21 January 2017 A surface trough extends from the Pilbara district of Western Australia through northern parts of South Australia and southern Queensland to a deep low pressure system over the Tasman Sea. Significant areas of thunderstorms can be seen over land along the trough, with isolated thunderstorms also embedded in the cloud band over the eastern Tasman Sea. A moist west to northwest windflow covers a broad area to the north of the trough, triggering thunderstorms over the Northern Territory and northern Queensland. A large high pressure system in the Bight is keeping NSW, Victoria and southwest WA largely cloud free.
