IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for 0000UTC chart 25 January 2017 Issued at 11:51 am EDT Wednesday on 25 January 2017 A humid and unstable air mass combined with an active Monsoon Trough over northern NT with embedded tropical lows is enhancing shower and thunderstorm activity across the Kimberley and the Arafura Sea, Gulf of Carpentaria and Cape York Peninsula. Elsewhere a broad area of low pressure extends through the interior of the continent with a surface trough triggering isolated showers and thunderstorms, and forming a thick cloud band stretching from central WA through central Australia and across NSW. A rapidly moving but weak cold front is crossing southern Tasmania. A ridge of high pressure extends across the Bight into the Tasman Sea, leaving southern areas of the continent largely cloud free.
