IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for 1800UTC Chart 27 February 2017 Issued at 5:00 am EDT Tuesday on 28 February 2017 Widespread showers and thunderstorms are evident over northeast NSW and southeast QLD. This convective activity is produced by a high pressure system over the south Tasman Sea directing a moist easterly flow into an offshore low pressure trough that is enhanced by a trough in hte middle levels of the atmopshere. Further south, where the trough is less prominent, the moist onshore flow has led to coastal patchy low cloud conditions for southeast Australia. Extensive middle level cloud over the Pilbara and Gascoyne regions of WA was generated by a low pressure system that has since moved further west and offshore. The patchy cloud bands over southern WA are formed by the passage of a series of low pressure troughs. In the north, humid conditions combined with a broad area of low pressure over northern Australia has produced showers and thunderstorms from the interior of WA through the NT to western QLD. Elsewhere, the subtropical ridge of high pressure is keeping most of southern and central Australia clear.
