New South Wales/ACT Satellite Notes
Cloud over the northern NSW in a slow-moving trough is generating potentially severe storms, mainly on the ranges. Some of the heavier storms are moving towards the north coast. Low cloud on the central and southern coast in cool winds is bringing the odd shower.
A new temperature record will be set in Hobart on Thursday if the mercury hits 29 degrees Celsius, which meteorologists say is likely, with a top of 30 degrees forecast.
Towns in Queensland's south-east have been hit by storms, but Brisbane has escaped much of the rainfall and the weather is no longer regarded as severe.
The start of spring has been unusually dry across most of New South Wales.
