A cool, wet and gusty weekend for Adelaide

Rob Sharpe, Friday August 2, 2013 - 12:12 EST

As people got up for work this morning in Adelaide, change was in the air.

A gusty cold front burst into Adelaide around 7am, bringing a series of showers and gusty winds. Showers have already eased in the Adelaide area with clearing expected this afternoon. Despite the clearing showers and the extra sunshine, the mercury will struggle in the low teens with the brisk winds making it feel like single digits at times.

Today's cold weather may have come as a shock to some people after yesterday's beautiful 19 degree day.

On the weekend the wind will remain gusty and cold, meaning many people will stay indoors. In fact, outdoor activities aren't the best plan on Saturday afternoon as showers will increase during the day with the arrival of a second cold front.

On Sunday there will only be a shower or two along with a top of 16 degrees. A few extra people will brave heading outside on this day as the sun will make more of an appearance.

Unfortunately for those who have work on Monday that will be the pick of the next week with a stunning sunny day reaching a balmy 19 degrees like yesterday.
