New South Wales/ACT Satellite Notes
Thick cloud over northern parts of the state with a low pressure trough is generating areas of rain. Speckled cloud over the south in wake of a cold front is causing showers and alpine snow. Skies are clearer elsewhere under a ridge of high pressure.
Hail storms, heavy rain and gusty winds have lashed Victoria and hundreds of people have called for help from emergency services as a cold front moved across the state.
Destructive winds unleashed significant damage in Parkes on Friday evening, possibly due to a tornado.
Conditions will be good for players and spectators alike for the third Bledisloe Cup match at Auckland's Eden Park tonight.
