The Bureau of Meteorology has issued a severe weather warning for potentially damaging winds for parts of Eyre Peninsula, Mt Lofty Ranges, the Murraylands and the South East districts.
Strong winds may result in areas of raised dust for central and agricultural areas as well as south of the Pastoral districts, including the Adelaide metro area.
Showers will sweep across the agricultural area and south of the Pastoral districts, persisting Tuesday before easing Wednesday. The Bureau is urging Adelaide motorists, particularly during school pick-ups and their home commute, to be careful as wet conditions are likely from mid-afternoon.
The weather warning addresses several weather forecasts including:
- Damaging winds and raised dust
- Showers and thunderstorms
- Potential for hail
The State Emergency Service advises that people should:
- Move vehicles under cover or away from trees;
- Secure or put away loose items around your property.
- Stay indoors, away from windows, while conditions are severe.
This swift change in weather conditions comes as one of the first to introduce us to the winter season, with heavy rains also forecast for the weeks to come.
