(CNN) - Bad weather hampered Monday's search for AirAsia Flight QZ8501, and with a long rainy season, weather in the search area today will look a lot like it did the morning 8501 went down. Showers and thunderstorms are expected in the region.
One of the key countries helping with the search is Australia, which of course played a big role in the hunt for Malaysian Airlines Flight 370 earlier this year.
Kim Beazley, Australian Ambassador to the United States, joins "The Lead" to detail the efforts.
