New Zealand Satellite Notes
Cloud spreading over New Zealand with a low pressure trough is causing areas of patchy showers, heaviest near Westland and Canterbury. Cloud approaching the far south with a cold front will cause showers to develop.
Hobart woke up to a chilly surprise this morning, with a light covering of snow dusting Mt Wellington and Miena.
A deep cold front has swept through Melbourne and parts of southern Victoria, uprooting trees and damaging buildings with wind gusts of more than 100 kilometres per hour (kph).
A 90-minute downpour has seen Darwin record more than twice as much rain as usual for the entire month of May.
