and maximum waves may be up to twice the height.
Coastal areas have begun to feel the effects of severe weather in South Australia, with more destructive winds on the way for much of the state.
Adelaide "may just get spared the worst of the weather" tonight but destructive winds are forecast to lash Kangaroo Island, Yorke Peninsula and South Australia's mid north.
Parts of South Australia may be without electricity until the end of the weekend as the power network is repaired and gradually brought back online, ElectraNet has said.
