IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for 0000UTC chart 22 January 2017 Issued at 12:44 pm EDT Sunday on 22 January 2017 A broad area of low pressure lies over Western Australia. A surface trough extends across central Australia and southern Queensland, triggering showers and thunderstorms. A humid and unstable air mass is resulting in the thunderstorm activity near the Top End and Peninsula district of Queensland. High pressure is maintaining clear skies across the southeast of the country although a little cloud is evident about coastal NSW and Tasmania due to onshore winds. Patchy cloud is evident over the Bight while southwesterly winds producing low cloud about the far southwest of Western Australia. Further east, a band of cloud is evident over the Coral Sea which extends further southeast. This is associated with a significant upper level trough and an intense low pressure system near the south island of New Zealand.
