Daily Weather Review for South Australia

Issued at 4:39 pm CDT on Sunday 1 February 2015.

Weather Situation

A high 1030 hPa lies well south of the WA/SA border. The high directed a southeasterly airstream across the state today. The moist onshore airstream circulating the high produced isolated light showers and drizzle over southern agricultural areas this morning. Light showers continued over southern coasts and ranges this afternoon. Temperatures today in the south of the state were cool for February under cloudy skies. A tight pressure gradient around the high resulted in fresh to strong winds over coastal areas.

Highest rainfall in the 24 hours to 9am was 3.6 mm at Parawa.
The overnight minimum temperature range was from 9 degrees at Mount Lofty to 24 degrees at Marla.
The daytime highest temperatures recorded to 4pm ranged from 14 degrees at Mount Lofty to 37 degrees at Ernabella.
