For people in Adelaide Metropolitan, Mount Lofty Ranges, Lower Eyre Peninsula, Eastern Eyre Peninsula, Yorke Peninsula, Mid North, Kangaroo Island, Murraylands, Upper South East, Lower South East and parts of West Coast and Riverland districts.

Issued at 4:06 pm Wednesday, 2 May 2018.

Weather Situation: A trough of low pressure currently in the west of the State will reach central districts, including Adelaide, early Thursday morning before moving across remaining central and eastern districts during Thursday.
A developing band of rain and thunderstorms associated with the trough is forecast to produce damaging winds and locally heavy rainfall over parts of the warning area from late this evening.

Localised damaging winds, averaging 50-65 km/h with gusts of around 90 km/h, are forecast over Eyre Peninsula from late this evening, before extending east. Damaging winds are most likely to be associated with the rain or thunderstorms.

Thunderstorms within the band may also produce locally heavy rainfall in some areas, leading to flash flooding. The heavier rainfall accumulations of 40 mm or more are most likely to occur in the Mount Lofty Ranges district.

Locations which may be affected include Port Lincoln, Whyalla, Clare, Maitland, Adelaide, Kingscote, Murray Bridge, Naracoorte and Mount Gambier.

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.
* Don't drive, ride or walk through flood water;
* Keep clear of creeks and storm drains;
* Stay indoors, away from windows, while conditions are severe.
