Weather Situation

A cold front moved across the far west of the State today while a broad area of low pressure lingered over the far north. Extensive cloud cover and areas of rain, showers and thunderstorms associated with these systems affected much of the State with the majority of the thunderstorm activity occurring in the far northwest. Severe wind gusts were recorded this morning as a result of the outflow from an initial area of rain that moved over south-central parts. In particular, Kadina recorded a wind gust of 96 km/h and Hindmarsh Island recorded a wind gust of 93 km/h.

Highest rainfall in the 24 hours to 9am was 5.0 mm at Winter Springs (south of Yalanda, Eastern Eyre Peninsula).
The overnight minimum temperature range was from 7.2 degrees at Mount Gambier Airport to 29.6 degrees at Moomba.
The daytime highest temperatures recorded to 4pm ranged from 20.0 degrees at Mount Lofty to 44.9 degrees at Moomba.
