IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for 0600UTC chart 19 January 2017 Issued at 6:30 pm EDT Thursday on 19 January 2017 A broad area of low pressure covers the majority of the mainland. Lows are centred over central WA and SA, with troughs extending from the pilbara to the southeast coast of WA, and between the two lows then eastward across northern NSW and into Victoria. A patchy cloud band extends between the two lows, with thunderstorms occurring throughout the low pressure region, particularly along the troughs. Thunderstorms are also visible over Cape York and the Top End. A large mid-level cloud mass is moving rapidly across the eastern Bight towards Victoria and Tasmania. A pool of cold air over the Tasman Sea is producing large areas of speckled cloud.
