Some decent wet weather is heading towards the northern parts of the state tomorrow including the EP MN, Flinders

Wednesday (tomorrow) we have a low to move through that is currently developing out west, at this stage, the centre of the low is to go 50-60km North of Whyalla leaving the wrap around on the southern side so many areas out that way should get some decent well needed falls. It''ll be amplified with an Upper Level Low as well. Adelaide and the surroundings should see 4-10mm, less South of Adelaide out of it with falls increasing north and west with many places including Ceduna, Cleve, Kimba and Whyalla to see anywhere between 10 and 40mm to decrease slightly when you get to Port Augusta with falls up to 20mm, areas are also expected to see some heavy embedded cores within the rain band.

Another forum will be posted after this event regarding the Fronts that will move through the Southern Areas from Friday.

Latest models (EC & GFS) suggest Adelaide will now get 10-40mm from this Low tonight and tomorrow grin

The air is very dry still and it's mostly virga unfort atm. Not much at all reaching the ground. That will change overnight 😀

Highly doubt 40mm for Adelaide, not in a fit. 4-10mm at most I'd say but some decent falls across EP with 15-20mm falling so farmers out that way be smiling with this.

Friday and the Weekend looks much better for Adelaide. EC hasn't been too flashy lately, some of the sites that use EC need to be calibrated a bit.

If only that blob were a bit more east - looks like Yorkes should be doing reasonably ok..

It's mostly not hitting the ground as mentioned earlier. It's been raining over Kadina for 6 hours or more and they have only recorded 3.8mm. The air is far too dry atm with dew points very low. But like I said that should change overnight and I still wouldn't rule out Adelaide getting smashed during the night. Perhaps not 40mm but it's not out of the question. It will just depend on where the next band develops and its track grin

Wow - the whole rain blob is swinging off to the south-west on radar.
Certainly puts the "eye" at a lower latitude from here.
Double fingers crossed this whole thing spins over us for a while!

A nice rumble heard over the North-Eastern suburbs about five minutes ago. No strike is appearing on the tracker however, so I'm assuming it was an embedded CC.

I heard something here too at the airport. Almost sounded like an explosion.
