New Zealand Satellite Notes
A thick cloud bank covering much of the country with an intense low pressure system is introducing heavy rain, initially to western parts, with showers to the east of the Southern Alps. Skies are gradually clouding over in the east of the North Island ahead of this system.
Cattle stations in the Kimberley region of Western Australia have had an extremely wet start to 2017.
Thousands of properties are without power in South Australia, with Adelaide being the hardest hit, after a storm front crossed the state last night.
Adelaide is having the wettest summer to date in more than half a century.
