A cool soaking in AdelaideRob Sharpe, Friday May 9, 2014 - 09:58 EST
Rain spread into Adelaide during the morning commute and will keep most of the day cool and damp.
Adelaide enjoyed a mild night due to the presence of cloud and breezy northerlies. However due to the arrival of rain the mercury fell from 16 degrees at 7am to 12 degrees at 9am. Rain will continue through the morning before backing off in the afternoon with gaps between showers.
The mercury will stay near 12-13 degrees through the morning, with wind chill making it feel an extra degree or two cooler outdoors. In the afternoon the breaks in the rain will help the mercury into the mid teens. This will be the final day to be both wet and cool in the next week and a half.
Showers will continue on and off tomorrow, although there should be more sun, helping the temperature to briefly nudge 19 degrees in the afternoon.
The weekend will be much drier, allowing people to get out and about for outdoor activities. This will be the start of a sustained dry spell that should last until the start of the following week.
