Spring-like warmth has returned to Adelaide for the start of the working week, but a wet change is due to reach the city on Wednesday.
Adelaide has its first warmer than average day in a week, reaching 22 degrees.
A large high pressure system sits bang overhead SA bringing sunny and still conditions. These clear skies and light winds are also the perfect set-up for cold mornings. An extra layer of clothing for the morning commute was required with a chilly six degrees in Adelaide, which is four degrees colder than average.
It was a chilly morning right through the state, with Renmark dipping to freezing with their minus one being seven below average. Gluepot in the NE Pastoral shivered through a low of minus two, which is nine below average and its coldest September morning in five years. And the community of Ernabella in the NW Pastoral shivered through their coldest September morning in eight years, getting as cold as two degrees, nine below average.
Tomorrow morning will be similarly cold before quickly warming up in the glorious sunshine. Adelaide can expect a morning of around eight degrees before a top of 22.
Yet another mid-week front is expected to push across the state late on Wednesday bringing a winter-like change of cloud, showers and fresh winds.
