Australia Satellite Notes
Cloud over northern WA in an area of low pressure is generating thundery showers. A band of cloud stretching from the NT through to southern QLD is bringing showers. Patchy cloud with a low, front and through is triggering showers and alpine snow over southern NSW and VIC.
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.
