IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for 1200UTC Chart on 08 March 2018 Issued at 11:52 pm EDT Thursday on 08 March 2018 The monsoon trough is extending out of a low pressure system located in the southern Gulf of Carpentaria, through parts of northern Queensland and out into the Coral sea. Middle and high level cloud with embedded thunderstorms can be seen within the vicinity of the low and monsoon trough. A broad area of high pressure that's located near Tasmania is bringing an onshore easterly airflow to the eastern Australian coast and generating low level cloud along coastal parts of Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland. Further west, the humid easterly winds are combining with an upper level trough and producing a middle level cloud band with thunderstorms over Queensland and central Australia. To the east, middle and high level cloud can be seen spiralling around Tropical Cyclone Hola which is currently located to the north of New Caledonia.
