The Bureau of Meteorology have issued a severe weather warning, as damaging winds have been predicted to move across the Murraylands, parts of the Mount Lofty Ranges and other areas of the state.

A fast moving cold front will make its way across southern coastal districts later this evening and early Wednesday morning.

“Squally” showers and thunderstorms have been predicted, with damaging winds averaging 50-70 km/h forecast in the warning areas ahead of the front.

Winds are expected to ease below sever strength early Wednesday morning but will remain strong around coastal areas.

The State Emergency Service has advised 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.

Another sever weather warning is due to be issued at 5pm.
