Daily Weather Review for South Australia

Issued at 4:33 pm CDT on Thursday 8 October 2015.

Weather Situation

Thunderstorms developed over Eyre Peninsula, the West Coast and the south of the North West Pastoral early this morning, and mostly cleared by midday except over the sea to the south where they continued into the afternoon. Due to the high base of the cloud and the dry lower atmosphere not much rainfall was recorded. Smoke haze was also reported at several locations including Adelaide. Otherwise conditions have been dry with areas of high cloud mostly in the south. Minimum temperatures were below average in the southeast and near or slightly above average elsewhere, while maximum temperatures were above average in most locations.

Highest rainfall in the 24 hours to 9am was 2 mm at Kimba.
The overnight minimum temperature range was from -1 degrees at Naracoorte to 19 degrees at Oodnadatta.
The daytime highest temperatures recorded to 4pm ranged from 15 degrees at Cape Willoughby to 38 degrees at Moomba.
