Rain reached Adelaide around midnight last night with a total of 2mm recorded to 9am this morning. This rain was caused by the first of a series of fronts that will cross the city during the next couple of days.
The increase of moisture with the front brought also a blanket of cloud and fog patches.
The night was warmer than average as a result of the cloud. The minimum temperature stayed above 10 degrees for the first time in a week.
A colder airmass in the wake of the front combined with cloud will start a cold spell today. Each day this week will see a top of about 15 degrees. Winds will become a feature on Thursday making it feel a few degrees colder.
Rainfall of around 15-20mm will hit the city on Thursday as westerly winds will send yet another front across the state. The heavy rainfall will be a coastal feature though. Showers will persist until Friday and will be isolated through the weekend.
