Well, finally the potential for a bit of rain! Not sure how much we will get but I'm always hopeful. GFS does seem to place the "core" of it passing a little south of Adelaide:

I did originally post a thread up for this system two days ago...

One of the better fronts that have moved through the state, Naracoorte taking the lead on gusts with a solid 115km/h

Adelaide Area faired 70-80, 96km/h at home. 3mm so far. Still hoping for 25mm

panorama of the front as it rolled towards the CBD. It kicked up a huge cloud of dust as it passed over the airport, but my poor old phone couldn't zoom in that far for a good photo

Apologies - I threw the thread up and later realized you had wrapped it in with the "heat" thread.

PS: Great shots of the guster rolling in - I was driving to work and went from sunshine into pelting rain!

20mm in Clare thus far and still drizzling. Got next to nothing from the first front but the second delivered well. Dust storm was rather speccy on the first front with low convecting cumulus glowing orange full of dust near sunset. I expect if we get another strong front E.P. will deliver more duststorms until they get a drink.

Anywhere east of the ranges very poor rainfall but that's to be expected with systems like this.
