Cloud stretching from the northwest to the southeast with a broad region of low pressure is triggering areas of rain, showers and thunderstorms. Low cloud in the southwest near a front is bringing the odd light shower.
Trampolines have flown into powerlines and a lightning strike has reportedly caused a house fire as a severe thunderstorm tracked from Sydney all along the coast up to northern NSW on Monday afternoon.

Thunderstorms are affecting six states and territories this afternoon, four of which are under warning for severe storms.
